    Awesome list! I’ve already read The Heart and the Bottle several times. Loved Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking series, (“Poo, Todd?”).
    Read Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick, which was stunning, so HAVE to get White Crow, and really found The Bride’s Farewell by Meg Rosoff a nice change of pace. It was not what I expected at all. Congrats to the nominees, I shall have to read every one!
