Sunny Days over Foreboding Nights

We really enjoyed The Night Gardener, and given its suitability for a junior high audience, ordered a class set that has been making the rounds among our students for the past month.  But even with its merits, it was no contest when up against I'll Give You the Sun.  (And we won't waste any more breath over Nazi Hunters, being that we're still shocked that it clawed its way to the end.)  Two more enthusiastic votes for Jude and Noah and their complicated but beautiful relationships!
