Shameless Saturday...

The year may be winding down, but the Class is still on fire!

Brigham Young University Education Librarian Rachel Wadham has selected Michele Barker's book, A Difficult Boy as one of the 12 best YA books for 2007/08

Also, her work-in-progress, which is a sequel to A Difficult Boy, received a letter of merit from SCBWI's Work-in-Progress Grant competition (okay, she'd'd rather have the grant, but it's nice to be acknowledged!)

In a related story, both Michele and Jody Feldman, author of The Gollywhopper Games, were shortlisted by the Eva Perry Mock Newbery Book Club!

And the biggest news of the week is that our own Elizabeth Bunce has been nominated for the ALA's William C. Morris Award!!! For her novel, a Curse Dark as Gold.

Thanks for linking to the Eva Perry Library Mock Newbery blog! Not only did we read (and shortlist) The Gollywhopper Games, we also read books by six other Class of 2k8 authors: A Difficult Boy by M.P. Barker, The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas, A Horse of Her Own by Annie Wedekind, Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains by Laurel Snyder, The Unnameables by Ellen Boorden, and I So Don't Do Mysteries by Barrie Summy. We will be sure to keep our eyes out for those 2009 titles, too!
