Battle of the Books, 1st Round

I've been hearing about SLJ's Battle of the (Kid's) Books all week. Now that the dust has settled for a moment, let's check in and see how things shaped up.

There are some surprises (I'm astounded that Nation didn't make it beyond round 1) and some tough battles to come (poor John Green now has to choose between We Are the Ship and The Hunger Games. Hoo, mama). What do you think of the winners? Who's your money on for the shiny gold medal?

Round two commences on Monday. To the trenches!

I may not be talking to Anne Braeshears.
It seems unfair to put We are the Ship against any of those books.
