Criss Cross

27th March 2006

Criss Cross (Newbery Medal Book)The plot of this book is hard to describe. It follows the lives of 6 or so young teenagers, all of whom are looking for love and friendship and a place to belong. Their lives criss cross in a myriad of important and unimportant ways. Some of the characters find what they are looking for, some don’t, and some merely don’t recognize what they’ve found when they find it. I reached the end of the book thinking that I had just begun to understand how the characters were linked, and also feeling that I had missed some things and should read it again.
