So the Cybils Short Lists have been posted! In the Middle Grade arena, the survivors are:
Chains, by Laurie Halse Anderson
Captain Nobody, by Dean Pitchford
Anything but Typical, by Nora Raleigh Baskin
Heart of a Shepard, by Rosanne Parry
All the Broken Pieces, by Ann Burg
Operation Yes, by Sara Lewis Holmes
The Small Adventures of Popeye and Elvis, by Barbara O'Connor
I've read 4 of the 7, so I have to get on it! There are some titles that I thought were sure fired short list contenders that didn't make the cut. I am genuinely surprised. But this is the thing about the Cybils: you never know what is going to happen!
Do you have a favourite on this list?
