Sunshine State Winner for 2011 - 2012

for ALL grades!!!

Sure, I loved reading about Alcatraz and his war with the Evil Librarians, and I loved Alvin Ho and the magic in The Magic Half, and those wonderful stories in Where the Mountain Meets the Moon...but I am so impressed that the book all of you thought the most amazing was this realistic, inspirational story. You readers are the best!
