Hi there. Sorry for the long break...I was sort of busy reading reading reading and also ajusting to a new position here at work and also just being a bit lazy. But I thought it might be nice to get another little discussion going here.

What do we think of Jacqueline Woodson's Feathers?

On her fabulous new School Library Journalized blog, Fuse #8 talks about not really knowing what to do with this book. What do you think? Newbery worthy material? I thought the writing was beautiful, but everytime I go to talk about the book critically, words like "I loved..." start to come out of my brain and straight through my fingertips. Not very objective or very critical. Thoughts?
