Children's booksellers are into Impossible

Publisher's Weekly announced their 2008 Cuffies, in which children's booksellers vote on their superlatives from the past year. Impossible scored not once but twice, earning an honorable mention for Favorite Novel of the Year, and a second one for Best Novel for Young Readers That Adults Would Love If They Knew About It.

And these aren't just the sort of honorable mentions that are given to anything that's remotely close -- they mean that Impossible made the top three in both categories. Wow.

So which is cooler? It's a quandary. But though the latter speaks volumes, I think I've gotta go with the former. "Best" is great, but "Favorite" is best.
