The Minnesota Youth Reading Awards (MYRA) executive board announced the winners of the Maud Hart Lovelace Book Award on April 25. It selected Wendy Mass’s 11 Birthdays (Scholastic, 2009) and Ally Condie’s Matched (Dutton, 2010). The nominees for next year’s first-ever Star of the North Picture Book Award were also announced. These children’s choice book awards were created to foster Minnesota’s school-age children to read.
