Semi-Final Reading List: Rachael Edition

We have now reached that troublesome point in the year when it's time to start narrowing down our choices. To that end, Sam and I have each decided to "nominate" four books for the other party to read. Sam has tasked me with reading: 

Crow, by Barbara Wright
Breathing Room, by Marsha Hayles
Liar & Spy, by Rebecca Stead
Moonbird, by Phillip Hoose

Then we each chose two additional books from the other person's reading list, so I will also be reading: 

No Crystal Stair, by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson
Three Times Lucky, by Sheila Turnage 

Sometime in November, when we've each read and discussed all twelve of these books, we will announce the final reading list of five books for the Maryland Mock Newbery (in Denton on January 14 - save the date!). If any of you Marylanders would like to get a head start, you can go on the assumption that the final list will be taken from among these twelve books (the six above, plus the six titles Sam is about to reveal).

And.... go!
