Class honors!

The season is upon us. The American Library Association has announced one award and honor after another. I am so proud of the Class of 2k7--we appear on so many lists!

Sundee Frazier won the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent for Brendan Buckley’s Universe & Everything In It(Delacorte).

G. Neri made the 2007 list for Notable Children's Books with his Chess Rumble, illustrated by by Jesse Joshua Watson (Lee & Low).

Then three members of the Class (yes three!) were chosen as the 2007 Best Books for Young Adults:
Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why (Penguin Group USA/Razorbill);


Ann Dee Ellis's This Is What I Did (Little, Brown); and


Sara Zarr's Story of a Girl (Little, Brown) which was also a finalist for the National Book Awards!

Congratulations all!

You go, Class of 2k7!!!
The Class of 2k7
