And the winner in Elementary/Middle Grade Spec. fic. is:
The Screaming Staircase, by Jonathan Stroud! YAY! I think it's an especially good winner, because it cuts right across any issues of boy vs girl book and is just a great book in general.
Here's the full list.
Thank you, EMG SF panelists--you all did a great job! And it's never to soon to start thinking about next year--look for the call for 2014 panelists sometime in August......
