Okay, maybe that was lame, but I stayed up too late last night finishing this book:
Right from the start, I loved this book - great characters, a setting so real you could feel it and a twist that I didn't see coming at the end. All around, a great read for either upper MG and older YA, even those who feel that historical fiction isn't their cup of tea. So, okay, it won the National Book Award this year and it's gotten great reviews - I'm not the first one to love it. Try it and you will too.
