After much spirited and thoughtful debate the students came up with this slate:
GKHS Mock Printz Awards go to:
Winner: Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
Honor1: The Truth Commission by Susan Juby
Honor2: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
Honor3(tie): The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough
Honor3(tie): All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I am tired. More analysis and discussion tomorrow when I also look at the ACTUAL winners and talk about my thoughts on these and those books.
