Thank you so much to everyone who came out yesterday. It was a very enjoyable discussion and a successful day! We managed to pick our Mock Newbery winner and three honor books. They are as follows:

Elijah of Buxton - Christopher Paul Curtis

Honor Books:

(alpha by author)
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Sherman Alexie
Good Master! Sweet Ladies! - Laura Amy Schlitz
Wednesday Wars - Gary D. Schmidt

Can't wait to see what the real Newbery Committee decides!

Great Choices! I have read the three runners-up, but not your winner. I resolve to get a copy and read it!
Thanks for posting your results.

Thank you Sharon for doing this Mock Newbery. I learned things I did not know about the judging criteria and the voting. It was fun, and you were a terrific host. It was nice to meet the other ladies as well.
