Newbery Watch II

My personal list of Newbery contenders so far:

The Underneath -- Kathi Appelt
Waiting for Normal -- Leslie Connor
Trouble -- Gary Schmidt
The Penderwicks on Gardam Street -- Jeanne Birdsall

And now to add to the list:

Savvy -- Ingrid Law

Have anything you want to add?

Ooo, Savvy!! That was a great book.

I read Waiting for Normal, and, I don't know. It just didn't "spark" for me. There are so many others who love this book, which makes me think I missed something. But I can't think what.

I've got Trouble sitting next to the bed, but it'll have to wait a bit because I've got other library books due really soon...

I may end up breaking my own rule; I said a book would have to blow me away before I called it a contender. But I'll probably also end up listing books I think will appeal to the awards committee, regardless of how much I liked them. I love Savvy's premise and voice, but after a couple of chapters on the bus I found it hard to stay with.

I'm waiting to read "Tracking Daddy Down." (it comes out in Sept.) I have a feeling it will make my list.

Marcia said...

Thanks for that title! I'll look for it as well.

I agree, Angela. I'd call it for the Printz rather than the Newbery, but I'm for discussing Printz titles as well. Definitely a title on my "memorable" list for the year.
