If you've already got a favorite to nominate in the YA category, then great :) Just double check to make sure it hasn't already been nominated, and it's been published between January 1, 2008 and October 15, 2008. The YA Category is separate from the science fiction/fantasy category. Just something to keep in mind. But if you were planning on nominating something, but found that someone else beat you to it...and now you're stumped and don't know what to nominate instead...then consider the following:
Word Nerd by Susin Nielsen Winter War by William Durbin The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine by April Lurie Something Wicked by Alan Gratz Hero-Type by Barry Lyga Outside Beauty by Cynthia Kadohata Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott Primavera by Mary Jane Beaufrand Genius Squad by Catherine Jinks
Right now...I'd say that I'm at the point of *begging* someone to nominate Something Wicked by Alan Gratz. I am reading it right now and just loving it. Loving it. Something Rotten was one of the Cybils books last year, and I'd say this second book is even better...even more worthy of a nomination!
