Challenger Deep vs. The War that Saved My Life

Our vote and blog is too late to matter, but we at DDM also liked War better than Challenger Deep. We had some trouble getting into Challenger Deep ourselves and thought our students would find it difficult to engage with as well. It was confusing sometimes and other times slow moving.

The War that Saved My Life is a book I am looking forward to recommending for students or putting into a literature circle, probably for grade 7. I am happy to see it moved on to the next round!

Now there are two Smackdown books I need to read the sequals to...War and Wolf by Wolf!
