Book Wars Bracket: Week 3

Things are getting tense as we narrow down our choices for the winning book.  Here are our last two matches before the big showdown…

Because of Winn-Dixie vs. Hatchet

The Tiger Rising v. Divergent

I’ve been asked a lot today about which books I want to win, and I have to say I’m rooting for both Because of Winn-Dixie and The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo.  Why?  First, she’s an amazing author, which is not just my opinion but something that is backed up by the fact that almost every novel she has written has won an award.  Tale of Despereaux, Because of Winn-Dixie, and Flora and Ulysses are Newberry Awards, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a Boston Globe Horn Book Award, and The Tiger Rising is a National Book Award Finalist.  And to top it all off, Kate DiCamillo is this year’s National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature!

What book do you think  should win, and why?  Be sure to back up your choice with a good reason!
