Battle of the Books...ROUND TWO!

*Ding*  *Ding*

Let Round Two begin!

In the first round we saw the defeat of eight books; there were some surprising decisions by judges.  I for one did not expect A Monster Calls to lose.  First the Newbery, now BOB.  It was robbed, I tell you.  ROBBED.

Going into the second round we'll have the following match-ups:

Match 1 (March 23, Judge Marc Aronson)
Amelia Lost vs Between Shades of Gray

Match 2 (March 26, Judge E. Lockhart)
Chime vs Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Match 3 (March 27, Judge Jewell Parker Rhodes)
Drawing from Memory vs Inside Out and Back Again

Match 4 (March 28, Judge Chris Lynch)
Life: An Exploded Diagram vs Wonderstruck

It's a tough call on some of them but I have my picks.  How about you?
