Looking for Newbery - Day 13 - A Look Back

I'm really trying to finish another new title from the list at Fuse #8, The Unnameables by Ellen Booraem, so far I like it, so I'm going to link to a review I did in October.

Even though it didn't appear on THE LIST, I feel compelled to once again, throw Itch: a novel, by Michelle D. Kwasney into the mix.

I'm not sure why this book didn't receive much attention, but I loved it. Great characters, quickly paced plot, handles a touchy subject matter in an appropriate way for kids, all of the things excellent books have going for them.

Let me know what you think if you've read this one.
