Prophet of Yonwood

Well, I finished the book tonight. I liked it. It is pretty equal to her other 2 books. Some interesting issues to think about as always. A character I could like, not love. A nice message for kids. The interesting thing to me is how she took what is going on now in the world (terrorist, doing things in the name of God, war, good vs. evil) and put them into this plot. Pretty smart. This book is definitely worth a read, although it is not on my list of possible Newbery winners. So far, I don't think I have read anything up to Newberyness. If I had to pick out of the 6 I've read, it would have to be GOSSAMER by Lois Lowry.
