And the Mock Newbery Goes to...

...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!
