And the winner is....

This feels like coming full circle as I cast my vote for the winner of this year's Mighty Smackdown.  I read Wolf by Wolf in the first round and I have to admit that it was for me a reluctant choice when it moved past the first round. Over the weeks there have been other books that I found easier to support and voted for those to move forward, but in the end it is Wolf by Wolf that gets the nod. Of all of the books that I have read in Smackdown this year, Wolf by Wolf is the one that keeps coming back into my thoughts as I make connections back to it over and over again. This is the book that most deserves to be in the hands of as many readers as possible.
