Can You Pick the Newbery?

Here at Sunset a few of us are going to participate in a Mock Newbery contest. The Newbery winner will be announced in January 2011 (I couldn't find the exact date). Here is the list of ten books that we plan to read and choose our winner from. I gleaned these titles from looking at other libraries Mock Newbery programs. These were the most mentioned titles. We plan to read them all (there are only 10) and then make our individual choices for the winner the week before the announcement. Feel free to join us or let us know of other books you think should be considered.
