BIG congrats to everyone!

  1. Embarrassingly, I am not familiar with any of the YA titles. One of my students just did a book report on Space Case, so I know a little about that one. He really liked it, too, so I'm not too surprised to see it here. Also, I think Stuart Gibbs had another book on this list two years ago or so (Spy School?). I've read Saving Kabul by N.H. Senzai, but I haven't read Saving Kabul Corner, which I'm assuming is a sequel. I usually try to read these before the winners are announced, so I've got a lot of reading to do!

  2. I have a lot of reading to do, too... I hope to get through at least the Juvenile, but we'll see :-) I'll be interested to hear what you think of them!
