In this provocative discussion-starter about what really matters, Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park’s linked poems capture the diverse voices of a middle school class answering the question: “If your house were on fire, what one thing would you save?” Recipient of four starred reviews. When a teacher asks her class what one thing they would save in an emergency, some students know the answer right away. Others come to their decisions more slowly. And some change their minds when they hear their classmates’ responses. A lively dialoge ignites as the students discover unexpected facets of one another—and themselves.
