Newberry Honor Book
If my life was to be just a single note in an endless symphony, how could I not sound it out for as long and as loudly as I could?
Annabelle lives a mostly quiet life in her small Pennsylvania town. Well, until the day Betty Glengarry comes into her class. Betty is found to be mean and manipulative, and most of the time it's isolated, at first. Then things get worse when Betty turns her attention on a reclusive WW I vet named Toby. He is now the target of her attacks. Many think Toby is strange, but Annabelle knows only kindness. She will need to find the courage to stand up as the voice of justice, even if it's alone.
