Hmm. I could not get into this, which surprised me, since it's a Newbery winner and all. The voice was too self-conscious, the dialogue too stilted, the plot too distant to hold onto. I will check others' reviews and see if there's a reason to try it again, but I was uninspired to continue without promise of payoff.
