Ahh...Down with Deadlines - Rebellion Edition

So we have decided to advance Ecco to the next round but it should not be a lot of surprise in that the novels have already been allocated for Round 2.

However, since Dia has given us this soapbox and repeatedly reminded us to blog - sorry :( - we thought it important to allow you a quick preview into the collective minds of our group.

Ecco is beautifully written and far more engaging. We, literally, found it a challenge to put down. With historical elements woven into its fairy tale world, the novel finds a place with students that enjoy this genre - with works like Once Upon a Time and Land of the Lost.

Conviction is a much more challenging read. Teenagers may be able to relate to it more easily. It just lacked any special qualities. It falls into a large group of novels that are well written and well developed but fall quickly from memory.

Good luck moving forward Ecco!!
