  1. This book is well written, but it has a few bad words in it, so it might not be for 14 and under. I give credit to the author for doing research on a government agency called “DARPA”; the information was intriguing. Though I like this book, I don’t think this book should be a Newbery winner.

  2. This book was very original. The characters were well described. I think this book can win the newbery.

  3. This book should not be in not mock newbery. This book can definitely win the newbery. It was exciting and well written. This was one of the best books so far.

    1. Amit, we agree that Project Jackalope is exciting and we like the story. As we continue to read this year, feel free to keep comparing this with other books. We need that special book that will last a lifetime… distinguished writing that is better than all the others. It is a complicated process, and I appreciate your input.
