Sweep, Sweep...Goodbye Challenger Deep!

This picture is for you Andrew!

Lock up your children...end days are near! Everyone agreed to move The War That Saved My Life forward. Below are brief comments from all of our participants:

Andrew: War had a story thread I could follow and I like ponies.  Oh Andrew.
Lisa: I loved Challenger Deep but have no one I could give it to...sigh of futility.
DIa: I loved Challenger Deep too but feel it is really a book for parents. I didn’t love the ending of War - it felt rushed.
Annabel: War appeals to boys and girls in my class and is constantly being passed from reader to reader.
Arlene: The audio for War is amazing. This book is accessible. Challenger is not for our kids.
Andrea: The War has great flawed characters that can be read and understood.

Holly: I would give War The Worst Mother Ever Award. Wolf Hollow and this book are the only books you can read and hate a character so much!
