  2. 6-8 Sweep the story of a girl and her monster by Jonathan Auxier
    I have never read this book but I want to read it because it
    sounds really interesting and I think it will be a touching and
    heartwarming story.

    9-12 Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly
    Absolutely LOVED this book! One of my favorite books that I
    have read! So touching and strong! Beautifully written!

  3. I voted for “New Kid” and “Harbor Me” for 6-8 because I loved them both!
    I voted for “Darius the Great is Not Okay” and “Love, Hate, and Other Filters” for 9-12. I especially loved “Love, Hate, and Other Filters”.

  4. Amal Unbound, Aru Shah and the End of Time, Blended, New Kid , The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl, The Night Diary, The Serpent’s Secret are the MOST A-MAY-ZING books! Any of these will be great for the Garden State Teen Book Awards 6-8!

  5. I chose the book “The Bridge Home” because I had never read any of the books that were avalible, but the one book that cought my eye was The Bridge Home. It looked like a book about adventure and risks.

  6. I vote for New Kid by Jerry Craft. It was a book I believe I read a long time ago, and frankly can’t quite remeber a lot of details, but I foggily remeber enjoying it if it is the book I’m think about.

  7. I did the serpent scepter and i read that in 6th grade and i still like that book . When i read i had images in my head about what is going on and i wrote post it notes i really enjoy reading that book

  8. I voted for New Kid by Jerry Craft because I read that book before going into 6th Grade and I think it gave me a pretty good look of what 6th Grade might be like and I think it is good for students who have just moved to a new school.

  9. I picked the books The Night Diary, Other Words For Home, and The Truth as Told By Mason Buttle.

    I read The Night Diary and The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle, and I am still reading Other Words for Home (Booked Online book!). The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle was really great because the author wrote as if she was Mason Buttle, so I could understand it better. I didn’t pick any others because it’s not good to judge a book by its cover.

  10. I voted on Darius the Great is not okay. This book is a really interesting book, and I have already read it. Darius thinks he is not good in America or Iran. It is all about his journey.

  11. Grades 6th-8th: I voted for New Kid because I really enjoyed reading the book this year.
    Grades 9-12: I voted for Stepsister and On the Come Up because they both seemed like interesting books.
