Longlist for the 2014 National Book Award for Young People's Literature

I set an alarm on my phone to go off at 6:59 a.m. this morning. I had just pulled out of the Dunkin' Donuts parking lot when it went off. I pulled over, clicked on the National Book Award's website, and kept pressing refresh.  At 7:01 a.m., this list magically appeared...
