The Mystery Writers of America have announced their shortlists for the 2008 Edgar Awards. Here are the Children's and YA nominees.
The Name of This Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
Shadows on Society Hill by Evelyn Coleman
Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn
The Night Tourist by Katherine Marsh
Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things by Wendelin Van Draanen
Rat Life by Tedd Arnold (Penguin - Dial Books for Young Readers)
Diamonds in the Shadow by Caroline B. Cooney
Touching Snow by M. Sindy Felin
Blood Brothers by S.A. Harazin
Fragments by Jeffry W. Johnston
In the adult category my favorite is Christine Falls by Benjamin Black, though I'm surprised What the Dead Know, by Laura Lippman wasn't nominated.
