Even though it's a bit anti-climatic, since the actual Printz award has
been announced, the Oregon Mock Printz "committee" met this past
Saturday to select the Oregon winner.  Thirty-five teens and adults
gathered at Central Library, Multnomah County Library to select a winner
from a short list of 10 books.  And the winner is...

Mock Printz Award - Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X Stork

Honors - Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and Tales of the MADMAN
Underground by John Barnes.  (At least we got one thing right!)

The other books on the short list included:
*	Crazy Beautiful by Baratz-Logsted
*	All the Broken Pieces by Burg
*	If I Stay by Forman
*	North of Beautiful by Headley
*	The Miles Between by Pearson
*	Heroes of the Valley by Stroud
*	The Eternal Smile: Three Stories by Yang and Kim

And, in response to a request, here are some additional titles that
should have been considered.
*	Going Bovine by Bray (Duh!) 
*	The Monstrumologist by Yancey (the Washington Mock Printz
*	Punkzilla by Rapp
*	Liar by Larbalestier
*	Ash by Lo
*	Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Hoose
*	Marching to Freedom by Schoomp
*	Lips Touch Three Times by Taylor
*	Hate List by Brown
*	The Maze Runner by Dashner
*	Love is the Higher Law by Levithan
*	Charles & Emma: the Darwins' Leap of Faith by Heiligman

Many of these books have been nominated for the OYAN Book Rave.  Join
your fellow teen librarians on Jan. 29th, 10-3, @ Jesuit High School for
the OYAN Winter Quarter membership meeting to finalize the 2010 list of
hot reads for teens.

Hope to see you there!
