The 2012 Cybils Finalists are Here!

The 2012 finalists for the Cybils Awards were announced on January 1. These shortlists are perfect to share with library customers as winter sets in and folks want to cozy up with great books.

I know my Middle Grade Fiction panel is quite proud of the list we came up with after reading and discussing our 127 nominated books:
  • Almost Home by Joan Bauer
  • Chomp by Carl Hiaasen
  • Fourmile by Watt Key
  • Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead
  • The Adventures of Beanboy by Lisa Harkrader
  • The Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine
  • Wonder by R.J. Palacio

The shortlists of books in the variety of categories--from book apps and picture books to poetry, middle grade science fiction/fantasy, and YA--will ultimately be whittled down to a single winner in each category, announced February 14. Head over to the Cybils website now for full finalist details!
