One vs Echo

At Westmin, we enjoyed both books.  Most of this has already been said, but we concur that One was enjoyable, but perhaps limited in the depth of development by the poetic form.  I, personally, wanted more after the surgery, too.  This book is an easy sell to our female readers.
Echo was lovely, for all of the reasons already discussed by other bloggers.  There was some reluctance from Wendy about the book being, perhaps, a little too American for a large chunk, but mostly we felt it was universal in many ways.
We add our votes to Echo moving forward in the finals.
