I unplugged a bit over the holidays and re-emerged from my “slumber” to discover that The Friendship Doll is one of the seven finalists for the Cybils Middle Grade Fiction award. This award was developed by the amazing children’s lit book blogger community. These people shoot from the hip which makes this honor very special.
It’s quite the list, too:
Tom Angleberger, Darth Paper Strikes Back
G.Neri, Ghetto Cowboy
Trent Reedy, Words in the Dust
Wendy Wan-Long Shang,The Great Wall of Lucy Wu
Elissa Brent Weissman, Nerd Camp
Lisa Yee, Warp Speed
I say we just arm-wrestle for the winner. Is that okay with you, Cybils judges?
