Year of the Book, by Andrea Cheng

  1. This book had a simple plot and wasn’t very interesting. It is probably for younger kids but I couldn’t really connect with the characters. I don’t think it could win.

  2. I think this book might be popular with a younger audience, but the main problem was unclear and the book never seemed to climax.

  3. This book was very sweet. I agree that this book was written for younger audiences. However I don’t think it has a chance at winning Newbery. It was very choppy in places and the characters were kind of flat. I also agree with Lucy, it never seemed to have a climax.

  4. A Cute, short read. I’d probably recommend it to my friend’s younger sister, a 6-8 year old sort of age group, but otherwise, it was just a fun read,
