More Good News for Grace Lin!!!

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, Grace’s Lin’s wonderful fantasy novel—winner of a Newbery Honor Award and the Josette Frank Award for Fiction—has received yet another great honor. It recently received the 2010 Massachusetts Book Award for Children’s/Young Adult Literature!

In this richly textured novel about a young girl on a magical journey, Grace Lin weaves characters and stories from Chinese folklore with universal themes of independence and attachment. The heroine finds her strengths in cleverness, friendship, and daring as she discovers essential truths for herself. The delicately detailed illustrations complement and augment the narrative experience. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is as beautiful to hold and view as it is to read. -- The MassBook Judges
