Another charming Newbery Medal award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, The View from Saturday is yet another tour-de-force from E. L. Konigsburg, who again demonstrates she has an illustrative knack for creating offbeat characters with a whole lot of heart. Mrs. Eva Marie Olinski recently suffered the loss of both her husband and the usage of her legs in a tragic car accident, and Mrs. Olinski’s return to her duties as a sixth grade teacher begins tenuously. Teaching at Epiphany Middle School, which is based in New York, Mrs. Olinski selectively chooses four students to participate in the Academic Bowl, and the competition frames the rest of the story. Four flashbacks, regarding the four teammates selected, are doled out in a vibrant fashion, as Konigsburg distinguishes the four students: Noah Gershom, whose intelligence makes him a confident leader; Nadia Diamondstein, who is dealing with her parents’ divorce and a keen sense of abandonment; Ethan Potter, who suffers relentless comparisons to his older brother; and Julian Singh, an immigrant who initially faces an outsider status. As Mrs. Olinski and the four students grow closer and closer, they progressively learn more about themselves, and the strength that comes from indomitable friendship. A classic in its own right, The View from Saturday vividly details each of its characters, giving them all an emotional depth that will resonate with readers.
