We've reviewed quite a few of these on here already this year, but where it will get interesting (at least for me) is when we go back and re-read them and then re-review them and see how a closer reading changes what we feel about the book. Because it always does.
One other thing to note is that we removed OK for Now by Gary Schmidt. It was chosen for our system's Mock Newbery as well and so to keep the discussion fresh, we removed the title from our list.
Hope you'll read along with us!
