The OPLbery contenders

The OPLbery Club, a new mock Newbery club that began meeting in July, is now in its fourth month. Club participants have been reading lots and lots of books. At each meeting, potential winners have been discussed and recommended and some books have been removed from the list of contenders. Here is our first short list. We will be choosing one winner in January, shortly before the Newbery award is announced.
