I spent this afternoon at Barnes and Noble, reading the 2nd of 5 nominated books in the Cybils Young Adult category.
I've now read Hattie Big Sky and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Each of these was excellent in completely different ways. I can already see what an interesting discussion the judging committee will have in weighing all the virtues of these finalists.
Still to go:
The Rules of Survival
The Book Thief
A Brief Chapter in My Impossible Life
