This was an interesting YA book. I see why it won the Newbury - it has the blend of history, coming of age, and it even threw in a little murder mystery to keep the reader on his/her toes. I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Jack and Miss Volker, the town's medical examiner, although I found the resolution at the end of the book to have wrapped up a touch too quickly.
