Breaking Stalin's Nose

I just finished the Newbery Honor book, Breaking Stalin's Nose by Eugene Yelchin.

I try to keep up with new books and was surprised as anyone when this was given a Newbery Honor as I'd never heard of it.  But I will certainly give the committee a tip o' the hat - this was a great book.  A quick read, and one that could be an excellent book for even junior high social studies classes.  I'm giving it to my Russian-speaking daughter.  And, it took me 55 minutes to read - so now I'm at an even 8 hours read for #48hbc.
