Night before Newbery

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon even though you're not supposed to consider anything but the text.

When You Reach Me for its 1970s New York setting.

Tropical Secrets because Cuba has always been a complicated and beautiful island.

Love, Aubrey and I did.

Heart of a Shepherd for its bravery and, yes, its heart.

The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate because it's not too long if you love every last word of it.

Finally, Crossing Stones because the Printz alone wouldn't be enough.

 See you in the morning.
