Rebecca Stead: When You Reach Me
Great characters, great mystery, and a whole lot of "A Wrinkle in Time."
Frank Cotttrell Boyce: Cosmic
Among the best books I've read this year.
Frank Cottrell Boyce: Millions
An endearing hero just wants to be saint-like and give his new-found wealth to the poor
Joan Aiken: The Serial Garden: The Complete Armitage Family Stories (Junior Library Guild Selection)
Stories that are just as amazing and amusing as I remember from my childhood. So happy that they're newly printed for a new generation.
Shaun Tan: The Arrival
Kirsten Miller: Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb (Kiki Strike)
Liked this sequel better than the first adventure. 14-year-old girls continue to fight crime in the big city.
Kenneth Oppel: Airborn
Old fashioned adventure on an alternative-world blimp.
