I was at a meeting where the subject of The Higher
Power of Lucky was being discussed as the new Newberry
winner, and because we were all elementary librarians,
the second paragraph "scrotum scandal" came up right

I hadn't yet read the book but went home and did so to
see what all the fuss was about.  Well, the book
didn't do it for me and it had nothing to do with the
use of the word scrotum.  

I think the dog could have been bitten elsewhere to
save the controversy and have broader appeal, but the
story just didn't grab me as an award winning book.
