Announcing the Winner of the 2013 FES Mock Newbery

75 students in fourth and fifth grades took part in the Falmouth Elementary School Mock Newbery Book Club.

 For four months the students read books from the FES Mock Newbery Lists. We used the Newbery criteria to discuss the books during lunch meetings.

The votes have been counted, and the winner is...

  Wonder by R.J. Palacio


FES Mock Newbery Honor Books

(in order by voting)

The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen

Liar & Spy by Rebecca Stead

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

Special Thanks...

The FES Mock Newbery Book Club would like to thank August Scattergood and Jennifer Nielsen for Skyping with us.

We enjoyed talking with Augusta Scattergoodabout how she got the idea and did research for Glory Be.

We also liked hearing about The Runaway King (sequel to The False Prince) when we met Jennifer Nielsen.
