At the time this won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature, I couldn't find it in any of the three libraries I use on my Overdrive app, and it had only two reviews on Amazon, both negative about it being a "Partisan Screed" and "Violently Partisan." Do these two Trumper-Fox News advocates know each other? The book is not partisan nor liberal at all.

I hadn't heard of the author, but learned that he has done many books and television programs and has won many awards for his educational writing.

I found the book to be informative, but tedious, wondering if any kid would read it for pleasure. Kids might use it for a school report or project.
