Spotlight on the 2015 Cybils Award for Middle Grade Fiction
Next, I want to thank Karen Yingling (Ms.Yingling Reads) for being our fearless leader and organizing the Middle Grade Fiction readers once again. And of course, a big thanks to my fellow judges for their insightful thoughts and the wonderful conversation/discussion we had while choosing the 2015 Middle Grade Cybils award: Greg Partridge (Always in the Middle), Gail Gauthier (Original Content, Jennifer Rosenberg, Youth Services Librarian, and Stacey Loscalzo (StaceyLoscalzo). It was a pleasure being a part of this team.
The winner of the 2015 Cybils Award for Middle Grade Fiction is The Blackthorn Key by Kevin Sands (my review is forthcoming):
