really liked it

Powerful, well-written book that I picked up after seeing all the love for it in the latest Horn Book (as one of "the ones that got away" from the Newbery committee). I can certainly understand why some may say this is too old for the Newb, as the book starts with a boy and a girl being stripped naked and made to spend the night on an island by bullies at their camp. The YA-ish material doesn't end there, either. At any rate, this was a good read.
