You’ve got one week to vote in the Children’s History Book Prize, whose nominees this year include Out of Left Field by Ellen Klages — the third book in the Gordon Family Saga, which includes 2009’s incomparable White Sands, Red Menace, a book that like a genderswapped, woke Have Spacesuit, Will Travel, with extra helpings of Cold Ware paranoia and terror, all wrapped up in poetic, Bradburian nostalgia.

* The Journey of Little Charlie, by Christopher Paul Curtis
