The Winner:  New Kid, by Jerry Craft

Congratulations to all our Mock Newbery student readers.  We had 19 schools participate this year and students read over 3,000 books!  Thank you to the educators, staff, and volunteers at our participating schools.

 

We use our knowledge of the books and that of all the many educators, publishers, authors, and reviewers to develop our annual list. The Mock Newbery List of 2021 will be the program’s 26th year.
