For the second annual Cybils Book Awards, I was pleased to be on the Middle Grade nominating committee alongside Amanda, Jocelyn, Kate, Kerry, Miss Erin, and Sherry, with Liz as our category administrator.

With over seventy nominated titles, many of which were outstanding, it was difficult to select the finalists. Here now are the eight finalists in alphabetical order by title. Click on a title for my review or an author's name for our interview.
