Cybils Folks, Please Help

I nominated Atinuke’s No. 1 Car Spotter which recently was published in the U. S. by Kane/Miller.  Now I see the following on the Cybils site:


No. 1 Car Spotter
By Atinuke Atinuke
Status: Pending Approval
Reason ineligible: Publication date prior to Awards Cycle (September 2010)
Nominated by: Monica Edinger

I’m confused because the above is a link to the U.K. edition which did indeed publish in 2010.  But the U.S. edition published within the Awards Cycle and I can’t see anything in the rules that indicate that a book is not eligible if it was first published in another country. But perhaps I’m missing something?

Thanks for your help here!
