If you haven't read the Newbery Honor Book, Lizzie Bright and the Buckminister Boy 
by Gary Schmidt, don't miss it.  IMHO, this is the one that should have won the 
gold.  The writing is beautiful, the story is brilliantly done.  A minister's boy 
on the coast of Maine, doesn't fit in, becomes friends with the black settlement on 
the island nearby, has adventures with whales, and throughout the book a very 
powerful theme weaves its way into your mind....  I haven't enjoyed a book this 
much in a long time.
