One thought on “Serafina’s Promise: a novel in verse, by Ann E. Burg

  1. I personally am not a fan of novels in verse, but this one had me think… The plot was written okay, but in my mind, it wasn’t distinguished enough to have a chance of becoming a Newbery. This book is great for ungrateful kids that don’t like going to school. 🙂
