Okay for Now

I was blown away by Okay For Now by Gary Schmidt which I finished last night. I couldn't put it down once I got into it.

Schmidt lives over on McCords Avenue in the house Kim and Cindy Arnold lived in for a short time. I would like to meet him. He was signing books at Costco yesterday and I was right in there at Schueler's. I could have stopped.

I read on-line that this book should get a Newbery Award and I agree. It will be eligible for next year's awards and the contenders come out next January.

Can't wait to talk to you about the book.
