The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I LOVED this book!!! In my opinion, it is extremely deserving of the prestigious Newbery Medal. Although the main character, Ivan, is a gorilla, you will suspend reality and believe that he is capable of writing his memoirs. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed this book and how much it made me think about friendship, art, and hope.
