2013 Frannies: The 7A Class Award

I am so pleased to begin this year’s Frannies tonight. There were so many great books published in 2012, and we only get to award a small handful of them. It’s like tasting water from springs all around the world and picking the best ones. The reality is, most of them are good, and many of them are really, really good. And almost all of them are good for you (though some may have 50 Shades of Pollutants). It’s tough to pick just one.

But.

Pick one we must.

The 7A class is a group of ladies and gentlemen who have read quite a bit during the school year, and a wide variety. The 26 of them voted for 9 different titles for their class award, after nominating 17 books.

2 of the books received enough votes to be considered “Honor” books. They are:

Wonder

 

 

 

 

Wonder by R.J. Palacio                                             and                                            Burning Blue by Paul Griffin

Look at those covers. Kind of cool how blue plays such a major role and we can only see the right eye of the face on the cover. . .yet they are still in stark contrast to each other.

Congratulations to our 7A Honor Books, but we have bigger fish to fry. The 2013 7A Class Book Award Winner is. . .

Mark of Athena

The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan!

A 7A student writes:
The Mark of Athena was a superb book. It was full of surprises and cliffhangers, and is one of my favorite books.”

Mr. Riordan is unable to join us tonight, but I am sure he is grateful for this honor. Mr. Riordan, you may stop by at any time to pick up your award.

  1. I rarely comment, however I read a few of the responses here 2013 Frannies: The 7A
    Class Award | Wyz Reads. I do have a few questions
    for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or do some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
