2013 Youth Media Awards: Christie’s Predictions

I’m horrible with predictions.  I’ve never predicted any of the media winners correctly, although I’m pretty good with Super Bowl teams once they’re down to the final two. And I can tell which teens are going to act up, and which tweens need to talk before they come to me door.  But I’ve never gotten any of the youth media award winners correct.  EVER.  So, with that warning, I give to you my predictions for the 2013 Youth Media Awards.  Share your thoughts and your predictions in the comments!

For The Morris Award:

For the YALSA Award in Excellence in NonFiction:

For the John Newbery Award:

For the Randolff Caldecott Medal:

For the Coretta Scott King Award:

For the Michael L. Printz Award:

For the Stonewall Book Award (Mike Morgan & Larry Romans Children & YA):


  1. Those all look like pretty solid choices to me! I'll bet you get some right this year, LOL. I love ASK THE PASSENGERS, and I think the Printz will go to it or THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. And yes to WONDER and CAMERON POST! But, you just never know…. 😉

  2. I never know either. And I'm a bad youth services/teen librarian- I'm at Midwinter, but even when I'm not in meetings, I tend to not go to the Awards Ceremony. I'll follow on Twitter, but I don't want to camp out to get a spot. 🙂

  3. I have to agree about The Miseducation of Cameron Post on both of your predictions. Definitely at least the Stonewall. I've yet to read any of the others.
