The View from Saturday...

This is a Newbery winner from E.L. Konigsburg. I'd only read one book by this author prior (The Second Mrs. Giaconda, which is loosely based on a part of Leonardo da Vinci's rea life), and I own another book by her that I haven't read yet (From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Franweiler). Aly has also read a book by her other than these 3 (Silent to the Bone).

This book is so wonderful and uplifting. It was written remarkably--the narrator jumps around between 4 children who had nothing in common before they were chosen to be a quiz bowl team. My favorite parts were about the play and the sea turtles.

Great book!!
