2005 Blue Ribbon Dissents

Unanimity and consent are all very well and good, but sometimes pure passion needs its own outlet. I'm speaking, of course, of the passion for a particular title, a title that didn't manage to make the Blue Ribbons list but nonetheless aroused in its admirer the desire to praise, to advocate, or maybe even to whine a little. Here, then, are our consolation prizes, our chance to appeal a book's case to the world: our 2005 Blue Ribbon Dissents.

--Deborah Stevenson, Editor
