Robert Davis (robert_davis) | 9 comments I read it just because it was a Caldecott Honor book (I am trying to read all of them) and yes, it was not bad, but neither was it outstanding. A bit slow moving and uneventful, like an indian summer in August. I didn't think the artwork was bad though.

Tiffany (caligirl9905) | 5 comments Artwork was decent but the story was bad. It was as if the author tried to slam all the possible teen angst into a book as possible. Also the storyline and inappropriate language distracted from the artwork.
