The final round

I was hoping for a big, OVERALL, clear winner this year.  I don't feel like we'll have one.  Each of the finalists will find a limited niche of an audience.  The Crossover will be put into the hands of few basketball-loving reluctant readers, Romanovs will intrigue a few history buff kids, and Jellyfish is a great read for our youngest gr 6-7 readers.
Based on that, Jellyfish seems like the best place to put my vote.
Renae also adds a vote to Jellyfish.  Although her true favourite is Romanovs, she doesn't see it going over big with students.
That's two for Jellyfish.
