Ok, someone has to help me out here. I didn't see the appeal of this one. At all. I know there's serious Newbery buzz about it and I just fail to see the greatness of this book. Other than the Madeline L'Engle references I thought it was kind of lame. Plus, it just didn't seem young enough for Newbery. Meh. I just want to know what people see in this one.
