2008 is almost here, and with it the Class of 2k8. For those of you who don’t know, this is a group of children’s and YA authors who have their debut novels (for this audience–some of them have previously published other types of books) coming out in 2008. To find out more about the whole concept, check out the Class of 2k7. All of their books are (I think) now released, and there were some fantastic ones!

It looks like 2008 is going to be a good year for books! Besides those from already published authors that I’m really looking forward to, we’ve got some fantastic-looking debuts to look forward to.

I’ve been reading the summaries and excerpts on the site, and, wow, am I 1)impressed and 2)looking forward to 2008! As you will be, once you check it out. Also, don’t miss the Class of 2k8 blog.
