Brackets

While I’m filling in my basketball brackets and arguing with my sons about who will take it all, I thought I should join the ranks of those predicting winners from the SLJ Battle of the Books. Here are my predictions for

Round One:

  • Amelia Lost over Anya’s Ghost
  • Between Shades of Gray over Bootleg
  • The Cheshire Cheese Cat over Chime
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone over Dead End
  • Drawing from Memory over The Grand Plan to Fix Everything
  • Inside Out and Back Again over Heart and Soul
  • A Monster Calls over Life: An Exploded Diagram
  • Okay for Now over Wonderstruck

Round Two:

  • Between Shades of Gray over Amelia Lost
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone over The Cheshire Cat
  • Inside Out and Back Again over Drawing from Memory
  • A Monster Calls over Okay for Now

Round Three:

  • Between Shades of Gray over Daughter of Smoke and Bone
  • A Monster Calls over Inside Out and Back Again
  • And the Winner:

    • Between Shades of Gray will overtake A Monster Calls

    Okay, those are my picks. Where are yours?
