Noah, Nadia, Ethan, and Julian.  Together, they form the Souls – the only sixth grade team to beat the seventh grade (and possibly the eighth) in the history of Epiphany Middle School.  Each sixth grader has journeyed to the heart of Epiphany – from as far as the Sargasso Sea to as near as the local school bus.  Each Soul tells a magical tale that weaves together turtles, bullies, strange weddings, laxatives, underdogs, and more. The View from Saturday brings together “four jewel-like short stories” – one for each team member – and brings back the deliciousness of purposeful conversation, laughter, and above all, 4:00 tea.
Newbery Award Winner.
