    " 5th Newbery Medal winner book I've read as a challenge with friends. I have to admit, it was hard for me to get into this book, but I am glad I stuck with it. It was a great ending that I saw coming but didn't see how it would get there! "

    " I think this was an extremely well written book... It had the thoughts and devotions of a girl who has a mind of her own, and tries to do the right thing. It made me swim in the words, and dare to turn the page... "
