In this episode of Team Friendship Reads the Newberys, we discuss and review the 1952 Newbery Medal winning book Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes. This is probably the first book in a very long time that we all did not enjoy. Despite this, we had a fun discussion as usual. (Warning: We do begin to digress toward the end.) We also share more about our trip to see Kwame Alexander in Milwaukee! Go grab some jelly beans and enjoy this episode!
