2010: The Year of Grace Lin


Well, 2010 certainly looks like it’s going to be a grand year for my good friend Grace Lin. She has already won a Newbery Honor Award and the Josette Frank Award for her wonderful fantasy novel Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. The book was on the NY Times Bestseller List (Feb 4th, March 14th 2010). In addition, it was designated a 2010 Indies Choice Book Awards Finalist for Middle Reader Book of the Year and was named one of Booklist’s Top 10 SF/Fantasy for Youth:2009 and to the 2010 CCBC Choices List.

Now the Association of Booksellers for Children has announced that Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is one of four books shortlisted for The 2010 E.B. White Read Aloud Award for Older Readers!
Hooray for Grace!

You can read all about Grace's NEW good news at her post wowee! over at her blog Gracenotes.
