A Garden full of Nights of Good Reading

My pick this year delights me for the appeal I feel it would have for the wide range of readers I teach.  It kept me up at night as leaves rustled outside my window and black pages stared me down from my bedside table.  It was creepy, exciting and full of twists and turns my students would enjoy.  Without hesitation I vote for The Night Gardener as my Mighty Smackdown pick.  My very strong honorable mention goes to Nazi Hunters.
