Beehive Awards Nominees

2009-2010 Beehive Awards Nominees
These are the young adult books nominated for Utah's own Beehive Book Awards:

Airman by Eion Colfer
Beastly by Alex Flinn
Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale (by a Utah author, who won the Newbery Honor with Princess Academy)
Climbing the Stairs by Padma Venkatraman
Evolution, Me, & Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande
House Of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (I've been hearing so much about this one. My 10th grade daughter and her friends love it. It's by the same author who wrote the Gregor the Overlander books.)
Schooled by Gordon Korman (This is the one that inspired one of my students to come to school dressed as a hippie for his book presentation. Glorious!)
Shift by Jennifer Bradbury
Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George (one of my favorites, and by another Utah author who is great fun at signings and speakings)
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor
