I think this one was well-written and interesting. The author is friends with the only professor i have this semester who doesn't make me want to slam my head against a desk repeatedly. If you look at the dedication of the book, "Shel" is my prof. She came to our class and she signed my book. Yay!
Anyway, i enjoyed it. It's interesting to imagine what this experience might have been like for a 10-year-old.
Oh, and i also read this one (in addition to Because of Winn-Dixie ) entirely while i was "babysitting" (the child was asleep). I'm pretty excited about reading two entire books in 2.5-3 hours even though they aren't really of an impressive length.
