There are so many enthusiastic, dedicated librarians running these events around the country, it’s really inspiring. We thought we’d find a few more and see what the scattershot results can tell us. Everyone knows, Crystal Balls are polished with spreadsheets made up of Mock Printz results, right?
A lot of places tend to hold their mock events around this time, so we don’t have a ton of results yet. Between the links here and the ones at YALSA, I tried to see which books were getting recognized most often (although this doesn’t necessarily tell us anything about which books will take the Mock Prize and of course doesn’t tell us what will win gold). A Monster Calls comes in with the most nominations at eight. Between Shades of Gray, by my count, got six nods, while Chime and Paper Covers Rock each had five.
