Not all Newbery award winners deserve the honor. This one does. Just because the book is from the juvenile section of the library doesn't mean it isn't absolutely full of deep and meaningful insights into humanity. It's beautiful and heart wrenching and hilarious-sometimes at the same moment, and all without an ounce of pretension (oh wait, I just described about half of the juvenile section of the library-too bad I can't say the same for the adult section). Do yourself a favor, don't miss this wonderful coming-of-age story told by a wonderful narrator.
