Recently I was invited by the Allen County Public Library (IN) to come to their Mock Newbery discussion on the 10th. I accepted and will be reading the following books:
Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
The Great and Only Barnum: The Tremendous, Stupendous Life of P.T. Barnum by Candace Fleming
The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
Melonhead by Katy Kelly
When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead
This will delay my big Newbery project, but I think one of these might actually be this year's winner; therefore I will have already read it.
