2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 

Narrated by Laura Flanagan. This story grabs you from the beginning. Jessica, a track star & junior in high school, wakes up in a hospital where she is recovering from a bus accident in which she lost her leg. Jessica's world is understandably turned upside down; healing - learning to put one foot in front of the other - takes time. The characters are engaging and the pacing of the reading is very well done. Performed by a single reader, it is fully voiced; female voices are very well-done, each one distinct and remains recognizable; male voices are less distinct. The few sound effects, mostly running or walking noises, are well-done. Recommended for grades 7-12. Audio. Rhonda Belyea.

2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 

Jeffrey Alper is probably the most famous kid in his town. Even though eight years have passed, most still know him as the boy with leukemia. Now in remission, and eighth grade, Jeffrey is dealing with the aftermath of his cancer treatment and trying to navigate life as a teenager. Podehl embodies Jeffrey, obsessing equally over the new girl Lindsey, his older brother's sudden disappearance into Africa to "find himself", his parents' sudden fighting, as well as the real possibility he may never get out of the eighth grade. Fortunately Tad, Jeffrey's best friend, keeps him anchored to reality. Tad's acerbic voice and black humor is the perfect contrast to Jeffrey. This sequel to "Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie" stands on its own.  Audio forTen to Fourteen. Paula Langsam
