And the Nominees for the Edgar Awards Are…

Recently the nominees for the 2013 Edgar Awards were announced.  I’m only going to give the juvenile and young adult lists below.  For the full list, click here.  Without further ado, the nominees are. . .

For Best Juvenile:


Fake Mustache: Or, How Jodie O’Rodeo and Her Wonder Horse (and Some Nerdy Kid) Saved the U.S. Presidential Election from a Mad Genius Criminal Mastermind by Tom Angleberger (Abrams – Amulet Books)
13 Hangmen by Art Corriveau (Abrams – Amulet Books)
The Quick Fix by Jack D. Ferraiolo (Abrams – Amulet Books)
Spy School by Stuart Gibbs (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers)
Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage (Penguin Young Readers Group – Dial Books for Young Readers)

For best Young Adult:

Emily’s Dress and Other Missing Things by Kathryn Burak (Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group – Roaring Brook Press)
The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George (Penguin Young Readers Group – Viking)
Crusher by Niall Leonard (Random House Children’s Books – Delacorte BFYR)
Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield (Penguin Young Readers Group – Dutton Children’s Books)
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (Disney Publishing Worldwide – Hyperion)
So, which of these books have your read?  The Edgars always surprise me.  With other awards, I’ve usually read a few of the titles.  With the Edgars, I usually recognize a few of the titles.  Embarrassing, isn’t it?  If you’re like me, you have until May 2 to get these books read so that you can say, “Of course, I’ve read the winner.  Haven’t you?”
