Here are the books moving on to Round Two:
I have zero strategy for picking winners in this competition. I just like to see my favorites last as long as possible. That being the case I would like to see Round 2 end with these winners: Brown Girl Dreaming, El Deafo, The Port Chicago 50, and This one Summer.
As far as judges go, I'm most looking forward to reading Elizabeth Wein's decision. Because I will read anything she writes.
