  3. I'm sorry to admit I didn't read too many books this year. My fav was Cell by Stephen King. It was a tense, fast paced apocalypse story.

  6. I guess my absolute favorite was Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein followed by The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp, Romeo Blue, Navigating Early and Beholding Bee. I did love The Klipfish Code and this week I have The Real Boy to read.
    WOW, thanks for asking your question, I surprised myself with my answer.
