2015 Judge: Elizabeth Wein
Elizabeth Wein is the highly opinionated author of Code Name Verity, which won the acclaimed Undead Vote in SLJ’s 2013 BoB. After Rose Under Fire’s ignominious BoB defeat in 2014, Elizabeth cunningly spent the year procrastinating to ensure she wouldn’t have a book eligible for combat in 2015. She is utterly delighted to be involved in the battle from the reviewer’s side, and looks forward to breaking her traditional politic authorly radio silence.
