Our first titles!

WE HAVE NEWS: We’ve picked the first three titles for our shortlist!

Soon, we’ll be posting about them individually, to create a space for your comments about each book.  But here they are, for you to consider!  Check them out, find a copy, and read.  ANd if you want to see the full list, as it grows, check out the “Our List” tab, which will help you navigate all the comment threads.

We can’t wait to hear what you think.


Welcome to the Atlanta Mock Newbery!


Over the next few weeks, we’ll be using this space to announce our first titles for consideration.  Each book will be introduced in this space, with its own blog post, and you’ll be able to comment and share your thoughts on the book’s merits. (for now, if you’re so inclined, we encourage you to check out Kelly Barnhill’s The Girl Who Drank the Moon, winner of the 2017 Newbery).

But more importantly, check out our “About” page to familiarize yourself with how this will work, and be sure to take our survey!

(we’d also like to thank Lisa Brown for our fantastic banner image. Go read her books!)
