If you’ve been reading along, you’ve surely enjoyed Lucky Broken Girl by Ruth Behar, Undefeated by Steve Sheinkin, This is Just a Test by Madelyn Rosenberg and Wendy Wan-Long Shang, and Fred Korematsu Speaks Up by Laura Atkins and Stan Yogi.
Now that you’re done reading, do you have a favorite? Great! Now it’s time to vote. Your vote will be tallied as part of our jury process, and the winner of this online poll will be added as ONE vote in our jury. Before you vote, keep in mind the following questions:
- Is the book as historically accurate as possible? Has the author conducted excellent, original research?
- Is the plot of the story engaging and well-paced? Is it believable and realistic considering the time and culture portrayed?
- Are all the characters relatable and not stereotyped?
- Is the book both accessible and challenging to 9–12-year-olds?
Consider these questions then cast your vote!
