it was amazing
Read in February, 2009

I refused to buy this book for many months despite all the hype. I felt the premise was inappropriate for children. With the Newbery, though, came my "responsibility" to read it. Not only could I not put it down, but Gaiman deals with every concern I had quite masterfully; no clunking kids over the head with it. It's well written, a great story, and multi-layered. It also made me cry.

Recommended ages: I still won't recommend to kids under grade 5.
