Now that the actual Printz award has been announced, it's a bit anti-climactic to announce the winners of the Oregon Mock Printz Award. However, the 30 people in attendance on Saturday had a great time debating the merits of 10 finalists and awarding the Mock Medal to (drumroll, please)...
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein, (which was given a Printz Honor this morning).
Mock Printz Honors were awarded to The Fault in Our Stars (which just received the Odyssey Award for audiobooks); Seraphina (the Morris Award winner for debut novel) and Tiger Lily, which didn't get any recognition by other committees.
The suspense is over and it's time to start reading what we all missed, the actual Printz winner, In Darkness. I've already placed a hold, how 'bout you?
