2012 Rebecca Caudill Award

Readers around the great state of Illinois voted for their favorite Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award nominee. My students agree with their fellow Illinoisans: Matthew Cody's Powerless is a high-energy novel that appeals to kids. It came in first place with 2,740 votes. Congratulations, Matthew!

Check out the book trailer for Powerless.

"I hope that kids who read the book can see themselves in it." -Matthew Cody

Borrow Powerless from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
