*tears in my eyes* HAPPY for Jesse Andrews, author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl! Congratulations to all the winners!


YES EARL WINS!! There can never be enough love for that book.

Shutta Crum

Great line-up of winners!! LOVE Frank Viva!And thanks for introducing me to a couple I might have missed. (I'll be updating my "Big List of Best Book Lists and Award Winners" with these titles, at http://www.shutta.com )

Linda Baie

A wonderful list to read and savor! Thanks for all the work that went into this, panelists, judges, and of course, to the authors!!

Robyn Campbell

Thanks for all the peeps who nominated these excellent books and their amazing authors. Yay for the judges. You all rock!


What a fantastic list of books! So happy to see favorites receive recognition! Thank you to the judges and everyone who facilitates this!!


Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to the Round 2 judges for their hard work!


SO happy about Earl! Congratulations to all of the winners (AND the rest of the finalists!), and thanks to the judges for making this super-heard decision! XOXO to all!

Fred Bortz

I knew my Meltdown! wouldn't win for YA nonfiction, but thanks to Liz Jones for nominating it. And it lost to a widely honored book, so there's no reason for me to be disappointed.

Congratulations to all the winners!

Scientifically yours,
"Dr. Fred" Bortz


Congratulations!! So excited for the winners.

Barbara Mojica

This is one of the best lists I have ever seen! Congratulations to the winners and thanks to the judges for doing an outstanding job! Looking forward to next year.

Andy Hullinger

Wow! Just Wow!

To think that our labor of love DragonBrush is honored among such wonderful work is truly, joyfully, humbling.


WOOT WOOOT for Laura Purdie Salas - how nice to award one of our own. And SERAPHINA and THE FALSE PRINCE - such hard, hard choices in the MG and SFF category this year - thank you, judges!


YAY! I'm so happy Wonder won!!!

Sonya Hartnett

I'm delighted that SADIE AND RATZ has been awarded the CYBIL prize for Early Chapter Books. The US has been incredibly welcoming to this weird little book. Thank you to the judges - I know that choosing is never easy - and to Katherine Sokolowski for the nomination.

Holly Mueller

I'm really excited for Wonder and Home for Bird! Now there are more books on this list that I need to read!

Teresa Robeson

Some of these books I've heard of, but not a lot of the others, so I'm arming myself with this list and heading out to a bookstore and library! :) Congratulations to all the winners and nominees!


Outstanding choices from those short lists!!


Thrilled for WONDER, and am off to read many more of these winners and finalists!


We chose The False Prince as one of our Mock Newbery titles. It was a huge favorite with my sixth graders. My students have been busy passing around ARCs of the sequel, The Runaway King, that I picked up at ALA. My students will be thrilled that Wonder made this list, another of their favorite titles!


This is an awesome compilation! Thanks for putting this together everyone. #kidslit

Barbara Daley

Most excellent list! So happy about Mrs. harness and the Pandas winning. So well deserved!

Apologize for the above typos. I meant Mrs. Harkness. My iPad has a self correction mind of its own !


My Mock Printz team read and loved both Seraphina and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. So I am delighted that these books earned the recognition that they deserve.
