Winner Description: 
by Christopher Paul Curtis, and published by Delacorte Press
Winner Blurb: 

"From its hilarious opening chapters to its shattering conclusion, The Watsons Go to Birmingham is a compelling novel that brings to life an African-American family. It draws together everyday events in such a way as to send the Watsons on a journey to Birmingham that will change them forever. In his first book, Curtis uses the devastating events in Birmingham to integrate the dichotomy of familial love and stability with the racial strife of the 1960s."
