Congratulations to all of the winners and all of all of the nominees, with many thanks to all of the coordinators, panelists, judges, and volunteers who made the event possible.

This year, I was a judge for the category of YA Fiction, along with along with Jackie from Interactive Reader, Sarah from Finding Wonderland and Readers' Rants, Lili from Inside a Dog, and Casey from Avid Teen Reader. We carefully considered each and every finalist. In doing so, we had some great discussions about taxi dancers, private schools, Australia, breakups, social hierarchy, narrators, and physical therapy, among other things.

Here's my one-sentence summary of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks: A clever teenage girl secretly leads and manipulates a boys-only secret society at her prep school. For my full-length book review, click here.

See which other YA titles were nominated, and which were finalists.
