This week's round-up of science fiction and fantasy from around the blogs (1/22/17)

Welcome to this week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs! Please let me know if I missed your post.

It's Newbery Eve; will a fantasy or sci fi book come home with a sticker?  I think When the Sea Turned to Silver, by Grace Lin, has a good shot, also The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill.  Though it wasn't my personal favorite, The Wild Robot by Peter Brown seems to me like one the committee might like.  My wild-card pick is The Left-handed Fate, by Kate Milford. My own favorite MG sci fi/fantasy book this year was The Evil Wizard Smallbone, by Delia Sherman, but it doesn't scream "Newbery" to me.  What do you all think?
