Mock Newbery 2016 [Part 1]

As 2015 draws nearer its close, my mock Newbery List is becoming crowded with contenders. At the forefront:

newbery-medalThe Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz

Echo by Pam Ryan Munoz Ryan

Orbiting Jupiter by Gary Shmidt

A Nearer Moon by Melanie Crowder

Fish in a Tree by Lynda Hunt

Others I have yet to read include: The Lightning Queen by Laura Resau and The Thing about Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin.

Sadly, Kenneth Oppel’s The Nest is not a contender because the author is Canadian. Many have included Goodbye Stranger but I found it so weak and disinteresting that I didn’t finish it.
