Signing in officially for the last time here only to give my quick few cents worth. My vote goes to THE BOMB only because I think it's important to recognize non-fiction. I'm even finding myself reading more and more of it these days - although my reading is more usually in the "creative non-fiction" genre (whatever the heck that means). As other Smackers before me have said (much more eloquently and thoughtfully) - I'd have loved to see FORGIVE ME, LEONARD PEACOCK as our SMACKDOWN choice of the year - I found it compelling and original and thoughtful - but since it's out; it can't. Hopefully the many mentions of FORGIVE ME, LEONARD PEACOCK in the final round will create some readership, however. Over and out, Smackers... but I'll continue to follow the blog - and to read YA - because it's just that good!
