Counting By Sevens vs. Leonard Peacock
Yet again, we at Vimy struggled to post in a timely fashion. Sigh. I think it was the rejection of Leonard Peacock for Counting by Sevens that threw us into great moroseness. It's difficult to recover from news like that.
Therefore we can only offer up our humble Zombie pick: Patrick Ness' More Than This. It's well written, skillfully developed, and Amanda is still gob-smacked by the ending. If a book does that for a reader, it's a keeper. I don't remember many of the books we read this year - they had a sameness to them. More Than This was distinct and deserves another pass around the book table.
