My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I love books in which kids find the inner strength to accomplish monumental tasks, and this one really knocks it out of the park. The author's writing style and the closeness of the relationship between the siblings in the story reminded me quite a bit of Madeleine L'Engle, even though Crunch is firmly rooted in the Real World. I passed this book right off to my eldest, and I'm looking forward to reading other books by this author.
