The Awards Season

Um.. okay. (!!??) The Quill Awards.
Scroll down for children's and YA.

(I did LOVE Julie and Julia, which won for best debut author for Julie Powell. I totaly voted for her. And I am in the middle of A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore, which is very entertaining so far and won for best general fiction).

On a more comprehensible note, here are the National Book Award finalists in Young People's Literature:

M.T. Anderson, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol. 1: The Pox Party (Candlewick Press)
Martine Leavitt, Keturah and Lord Death (Front Street Books/Boyds Mills Press)
Patricia McCormick, Sold (Hyperion Books for Children)
Nancy Werlin, The Rules of Survival (Dial/Penguin)
Gene Luen Yang, American Born Chinese (First Second/Roaring Brook Press/Holtzbrinck)
