The thing is, I have an aunt who won't read fiction at all because she says that she doesn't want to waste her time. She only reads nonfiction because she can learn from it. Well, I have learned so much from fiction.
Oh man...this is a book that I want everyone to read because I just want to talk about it. Incredible. Everyone. Everyone should read this beautiful book.
As I look at the Newbery Award for that year, I am just sickened. If this isn't 1954, then I don't know what is.
