The Smack that Will Not Die

As the year slid to an end we ran out of time to crown our winner....after all that read read and all that quit....quit..............Your winner is Scrawl!

Sure it was close and who knows if those last few votes would have moved it in another direction? Arlene and I had a blast and hope we can Smack back with you this year....stay tuned and enjoy your time back at school.

Annabel's Long Awaited or Overdue Post

Scrawl is it for me. The combination of a mixed up male character who struggled with his home life and sometimes his friends but secretly excelled in school drew me in. I liked the honesty of his journal and thought there was lots in there that many different students might be able to relate to. The characters all came to life for me and I wished there was a page after the last page!
