...Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper!!!
Our Mock Newbery Committee met Sunday, December 12 for our first Mock Newbery Election. Eleven students, led by our own celebrity reader/blogger Laura Rodgers, reviewed the award and its rules, and discussed and voted for their choice recipient of the 2011 Newbery Award. Also, a fair amount of snacks were enjoyed!
The group also chose three Honor books: Keeper by Kathi Appelt, One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia, and The Dreamer by Pam Munoz Ryan.
We anxiously await the results of the official Newbery winner, which will be announced on January 10 at 7:45am to see if the official committee agrees with our choice!
What a cool experience!
