Sally Gardner, Maggot Moon
Nick Lake, In Darkness
R.J. Palacio, Wonder
Marcus Sedgwick, Midwinterblood
Dave Shelton, A Boy and a Bear in a Boat
Elizabeth Wein, Code Name Verity
I nominatd Boy and a Bear in a Boat so it is a nice surprise to see it up there, I thought it might be a little bit too simple. For the same reason I'm surprised to see A Greyhound of a Girl: although I really enjoyed it it didn't seem quite enough.
The Weight of Water and Midwinterblood were both good reads but I there were other things on the list that I thought far more worthy.
The book I thought might win isn't even on the list! I'm now torn between Maggot Moon and Code Name Verity.
But my short list was half right! Which is your favourite?
