A Very Nice Consolation Prize
I thought I'd start the new year off with a Degas painting. Pretty, don't you think?
So, the bad news is that Brothers didn't make the Cybils YA fiction shortlist, but ... I found this awesome review by one of the judges - Trisha, a YaYaYa librarian. (Just scroll down past the winners to see it.) It seems that if there were a few more spots available on the list, the novel might have made it! So, I'm very happy. And honored. Congratulations to the winners and a big hearty thanks to the judges!
