This is the book that started me journaling about my reads. When I was a child, I accidently read this book twice. The second time, I didn't realize I had already read it until the end, where I thought, "Oh, crap, I already read this book. I know the ending."

Well, put some ten to fifteen years in between and now I've read it again. A superb story, though I can't figure out why it won the Newbury Award. Did it win on merely because it's a well-written tale? I'm not sure I see the connection to the lives of modern children.
