  1. I would vote this book for newbery; the plot and the characters were compelling, and how the plot went throughout the book made it hard to put down. The ending surprised me, but it was a complete story.

  2. I have to say that this is one of my favorite books, and I would vote it for the Newbery. But “Lions of Little Rock” appealed to me more, and since they are in the same category, I would vote for “Lions of Little Rock”.

  3. I would definitely vote it for a Newbery winner. My mother read it, considering she’s writing a historical fiction book (or was writing a historical fiction book ;) about the Wilmington race riots. She said, and I agree, that all the facts were accurate, and it had a well-done plot. I’m hoping it will win or receive and honor.
