Today I had the most wonderful conversation with a 5th grade girl who is a voracious reader. We talked a bit about the Mock Newbery, she (and her mom) took an ARC to read, and they both promised to post comments on this blog. Mary -- great name, eh? -- also said she thought this title should be included on our blog. Here you go, Mary! I look forward to reading your comments!

I loved this book! I'm Mary, the voracious reader, but when I reccomended this book,I hadn't read it. Annie loved it so I told Mary about it. The next week I read it and I adored it. I finished it in two hours and I couldn't put it down. A must read for all ages!
