Statewide Maud Hart Lovelace Winners

The results are in, and among 5,270 Division II voters across the state, the winning book this year was Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. The movie of this book is coming out soon, so it will only get more popular. Pageturners Book Club members were disappointed—it wasn't their favorite. They liked House of the Scorpion, but that was probably too advanced for many readers.

Here are the numbers of votes for the top 6 books. Interestingly, Hoot only had 13.8% of the vote, and City of Ember had 13.6% of the vote.

Hoot 728
City of Ember 719
Full Tilt 643
House of the Scorpion 632
Once Upon a Marigold 476
Skeleton Man 464
