Newbery Quickie: In Under the Wire
I haven't mentioned the Newbery at all, as at school we're doing a mock Caldecott only. But I must plug my favorite Newbery contenders this year: Brown Girl Dreaming and The Fourteenth Goldfish. I'm in the middle of The Crossover now and loving it - so far - maybe even more than Brown Girl Dreaming, but it skews older, although still in Newbery territory. I thought The Family Romanov was a great work of nonfiction, which especially appealed to me as I studied Russian and Russian history in college, but Newbery material? I'm not convinced.
