School Library Journal has done a great job with this competition. To see the whole battle and all of the judge's comments you can visit the site linked below.
I have to say that I am thrilled with the final decision, and Judge Lowry's comment's are hilarious. I loved this book from the beginning and found it very hard to put down. Check out the winner and the book I am talking about on SLJ's website below. (Hint, hint... there is a sequel coming out this fall.)
