Bottom Line...

...  for Barb and Mona -
A Monster Calls was a better book whether reading it with a class, or reading it on your own.  The other books were good, but not as good!!
We both enjoyed the voice in Okay for Now. It was a decent story up until the abrupt turn-around of the dad - without any rhyme or reason.  A Tale Dark and Grimm was an amusing and entertaining story but we felt it should have moved along more quickly at the end.
 A Monster Calls was beautifully written, spanned all ages and is our choice for the winner.
