How many did you read? Debut middle grade 2010 books

So many books, so little time. I wanted to support fellow debut writers whose books came out in 2010 with this list before we all move on to the shiny new 2011 releases. It struck me that it would be a good thing to do when I saw some lists of people’s favorite 2010 books posted by the first of December, because I worried that some of the debuts with October, November and December release dates would be overlooked. In this era of budget cuts, so many schools and libraries don’t have funds to take a chance on new authors, and authors themselves have fewer ARCs to send out.

I’m sure I’ve missed many, so if you know of another 2010 middle grade debut, please leave it in the comments and I will update the list. Also, I tried to make sure these were all debuts, but it was tough to find information on some authors, so again, please post correct information in the comments if you see I’ve made a mistake. But most of all, enjoy! I hope we will see many more books from all these authors.
