National Books Awards Finalists 2012

National Book Awards Finalists were announced this morning.  Here is a list of the Young People's Literature Finalists:
  • Goblin Secrets by William Alexander (ages 8 and up)
  • Out of Reach by Carrie Arcos (ages 14 and up)
  • Never Fall Down by Patirica McCormick (ages 14 and up)
  • Endangered by Eliot Schrefer (ages 12 and up)
  • Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin (ages 10 and up)
I'm cheering for Bomb, and I'm going to try to get my hands on a copy of Endangered before the winner is announced in mid-November.


  1. I haven't read any of those books!!! I need to find time to read the books that might win . . .

  2. I haven't read them either. Interesting choices.
