Hmm... this is tougher than I thought it would be

Can I just say that it's all been said?  Out of all the amazing books in the Smackdown this year, I feel that we do not have the top 3 to vote for.  However, rather than dwelling on those that should still be here (Eleanor & Park!  Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock!) I will say that each of the remaining three have something to offer readers, adult and youth alike.  That makes me happy.  And of the three remaining titles, I must go with The One and Only Ivan.  It's a heart vote.  While Bomb was interesting and Counting by 7s uplifting, Ivan is memorable.  That being said, do I think it will win?  Who knows at this point with so many votes left to be cast, but it would be cool to see the zombie pick take first place.
