‘Pie’ wins Oregon Reader’s Choice Award

Book cover: Pie by Sarah Weeks. A large white cat licks his lips, looking at a pie drawn floating over his head.
In the upper-elementary division, Pie by Sarah Weeks is the winner in the fourth annual Oregon Reader’s Choice Award (ORCA). (Pie was also featured this year in Oregon Battle of the Books.)

About 2,635 students voted for nominees in the upper-elementary, middle school and high-school divisions, according to the Oregon Library Association. These votes came from 60 participating schools and six public libraries.

ORCA winners in middle-school and high-school divisions this year were The Worst Years of My Life by James Patterson and Divergent by Veronica Roth respectively.
