The one that surprised me the most was a book called Zia. It is the sequel to Island. In it, Karana's niece believes that her aunt is still alive and spearheads the rescue mission. I have not read it, but I did just buy it for my school's library at a used book sale.
O'Dell also won Newbery Honors for his books The King's Fifth; Black Star, Bright Dawn; The Black Pearl; and Sing Down the Moon. I have actually heard of these books, but had no idea they were written by him.
When you find a good author such as him, you need to read as many of his books as you can. So, my to-read list has once again been expanded!
