15After a second round of discussion with additional clarification and examples from the books, our Heavy Medal Mock Newbery Fifteen cast their secret votes again.

At this point, 10 out of the original 18 titles received votes.  Many members have shifted their choices so that we could potentially have a winner.

Sharon, Steven, and I thank all of our hard-working (over the weekend, both on Heavy Medal and via email re logistics) Mock Newbery Fifteen!

Here is result for our 3rd ballot:

1st Place 2nd Place 3rd Place Total Points
All’s Faire in Middle School 1 2
Beyond the Bright Sea 1 1 5
First Rule of Punk 1 1 5 17
Her Right Foot 1 2
I’m Just No Good at Rhyming 9 2 1 44
Princess Cora and the Crocodile 2 1 2 15
Real Friends 1 2
Vincent and Theo 1 1 5
War I Finally Won 3 7 33
Wishtree 2 2 10

 

I’m Just No Good at Rhyming has received more than the needed 8 1st Place Votes.

It also scores 44 total points, 11 points over the next highest – War I Finally Won, with 33 points, more than the necessary 8-point spread.

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

Congratulations to Chris Harris for winning the 2018 Heavy Medal Mock Newbery Fifteen Medal.
