Picking your Zombie

I have some guilt leftover from round one of this year's Smackdown.  Kevin and I read More Than This and Wonder.  After our conversations, we felt compelled to move on More Than This to hear other people's opinions about the book.  Turns out, most of you have liked it and it has moved all the way at least to this second-last round.  (We'll see what happens now).  However, Wonder is a really good read.  It's a sweet book.  Fun characters.  Kids like it.  In fact, I have a few girls who have read both Counting By 7's (also a current choice) and Wonder.  They really liked both.  Under immense pressure from me to make a choice, they finally said they liked Wonder a bit more.  But so few of you got to read it because we cut it so early.

My plea is this:  if you don't have a strong feeling about another pick for your zombie choice, consider picking Wonder so you will have an excuse to read it, too.  Dia, it's my pick.

Unless something happens and Leoanard Peacock doesn't make it into the finals.  In that case, ignore everything I just said and make that my zombie, Dia!
