Today my class debated the four remaining titles in our Novel Madness contest. Then they voted! The finalists for this year’s Novel Madness competition are:
by Suzanne Collins
The Candy Shop War
by Brandon Mull
Collins’ book has been nominated every year (this is the third year of Novel Madness) and never won. This is the first nomination for Mull’s book. I find it an interesting pairing. Hunger Games is much more Young Adult, but maybe more popular because of the movie. The Candy Shop War is middle grade. In order for it to be represented here, a lot of students had to have read it. The final debate will happen on Tuesday, and we’ll crown the winner shortly afterwards.
