Edgar Winners for Best Juvenile and Best YA

And the winners are...

Best YA:
The Silence of Murder by Dandi Daley Mackall

Best Juvenile:
Icefall by Matthew J. Kirby

I know, I was wrong on both--but then the odds (one-in-five) were ever not in my favor.

Congrats to the winners and the nominees! For me, picking a winner was like flipping a coin, so I hope all the nominees celebrate this weekend anyway.

Happy Friday, y'all...


  1. I feel silly for never having heard of these awards, and even sillier for never having read any of these books. I know I'm a bit beyond "YA" or "Juvenile" lit ... but then again, who says I'm too old for it? (Harry Potter sure doesn't!) I'm going to have to get back into reading more genres and paying more attention to the lit scene! Thanks for sharing this info!

  2. You're never too old to read YA or middle-grade :-) Thanks for stopping by, Khara!
