I was selected to participate in the 3rd annual Cybils awards selection process as a panelist for middle grade fiction! I am feeling very humble after browsing the brilliant weblogs of my fellow panelists:
Together, we will sift through the nominated titles (last year's MG list was 70+?) and narrow them down to a more manageable list, from which the winner will be chosen by the second-round judges. Rereading the list of nominees from last year was like looking at a list of some of my favorite books! I am really looking forward to the process. If you know of a great book, nominations open October 1st!
