Counting by Sevens clearly the winner

I found this choice to be the easiest of all of the rounds as there was clearly one book that stood out above the others.  I had read Bomb in an earlier round and to be honest, it barely made it out of the bracket. The One and Only Ivan, although interesting, is not in the same league as Counting by Sevens which is the clear choice of the finalist list.  Perhaps there is a stronger book waiting in the wings by it didn't make it through the process but it should not be considered in this round or influence the decision making process. Until next year.... that's my Smack.
