Morris Award Finalists

The Morris Award is a new award given to outstanding first-time YA authors.  Official wording and award info here.

Here are the five finalists:

  • Curse as Dark as Gold by Elizabeth Bunce
  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
  • Absolute Brightness by James Lecesne
  • Madapple by Christine Meldrum
  • Me, the Missing, and the Dead by Jenny Valentine

I have only read Graceling but Madapple and Me, the Missing, and the Dead are on my to-read pile.  I’m not doing very well with reading award finalists or winners so far this year.
