Although I have not read all your titles here, some of them that I really think are above others include:
Greetings from Nowhere, Waiting for Normal, Tennyson by Blume, The Winter War: A Novel by William Durbin, Snow Falling in Spring, by Moying Li, Bird Lake Moon by Kevin Henkes, Diamond Willow by Helen Frost, The Underneath by Appelt, Eleven by Giff, and Keeping the Night Watch by Hope Anita Smith.
As far as "my" book club kids go, we hope to post our short list in a couple weeks.

What a great list! I think The Willoughbys is one of the funniest books I've read in years, I thought Waiting for Normal was very strong, and I have Jeremy Cabbage and the Living Museum... on my "read this asap" pile. We just posted our 1st of 4 Mock Newbery reading lists at It's fascinating to compare and contrast the different lists!
