The point of this award, in my mind, and I think in Andre Norton's, was to bring attention to spec YA books that were being missed, ignored. Voting for Deathly Hallows fails that purpose. Spectacularly.
I plan to pimp the hell out of the other nominees.
And if you voted for Deathly Hallows? Please don't tell me. I'm not in the mood to hear it right now.
