Heavy Medal Finalist: HEY, KIDDO by Jarrett J. Krosoczka

Hey Kiddo

HEY KIDDO by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is today’s Heavy Medal Finalist. Heavy Medal Committee member Mary Zdrojewski points out that “The dialogue all feels natural, and each line reveals more about the character speaking it. Even portions that don’t seem essential to the plot deepen the characters so that no line is wasted.”
