  1. I can’t really tell if this book is worthy of the newbery. It was definitely interesting, it had character developement,a good plot, no cliff hangers, and a writing style that was interesting to read and made me picture the scenes, but now that it is nearing the end of the year I have read a lot of books that i think are more exceptional. I would reccomend this to fourth through sixth graders looking for interesting historical fiction.
