Newbery Challenge- 2013 The One and Only Ivan

I'm starting the Newbery Challenge with the 2013 winner The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.

I know this is blaspheme because I haven't talked to anyone else who feels this way, but I liked this book. I think there was a lot of hype about it and it was talked up too much. I went in expecting... fireworks.

It was good.

It was warm.

But it wasn't electric.

I still talk it up to my kids. I will always encourage them to read it and I have had so many come back and say "I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!"

In the future I will try not to let the hype in!
