Am I too late to vote?

I loved all of the final three.  Tales Dark and Grimm was a book I could recommend to all the kids at my school - I think the older kids would have enjoyed the campiness of it.  Okay for Now was just a great story showing how you can do good for someone other than yourself and I really connected to the art.  But Monster Calls will be my pick.  It was a beautiful tale that I did not think I could read without thinking about my own mom who passed away three years ago from cancer but it was all good.  The imagery just spoke to me.  It would not be for every student but I am voting for a great overall book.
See you all next year!
