Cybils 2008 Nominees: Fantasy and Science Fiction - middle/elementary

Although I'm not a part of the Cybils Fantasy/Science Fiction team this year, I'm still following it closely, and not just because a book I published (Ratha's Courage) is a nominee. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I love YA fantasy and science fiction, and I love the Cybils, so I'm watching this with more excitement and anticipation than Christmas Eve. I've read so many of these books, and there are others that I'd love to read. The nominating panelists have a really tough job ahead of them!

Here are the 2008 nominees for Fantasy and Science Fiction in the middle/elementary age group:
