Book Review #471
Many Stones by Carolyn Coman
Rating: one star (out of four)

I thought that this book was trying to deal with a heavy issue and make it something that you could relate, it just didn't quite do it.  It messed up and made things seem crude or lame several times during the story.  There would be times where the writing was so poignant, and then in the next paragraph the author would ruin the moment by putting in things I didn't think were appropriate for the story or the plot.  I really can't see why this got the Printz Honor.  I know that my rating seems a little harsh, but I really wouldn't want any of my friends reading this book, it was sad, and didn't have an ending that was worth reading through the book.
