Another event that "happens, but it's really infrequent" is my correct prediction of the Newbery winner. I did it the first time in 1994, when I knew as I was reading it that The Giver by Lois Lowry would win. And this year, I did it for the second time, with When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. (I should've known about Holes, too, but oh well.) This novel is, all at once, mystery, time travel, and historical (1970s). It's about friendship, family, self-sacrifice, intelligence, and at its center, a really cool puzzle. And if I think it's a must-own, maybe YOU'D like to have it too.
