The Fiction Award Winner is Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell!
Honors go to Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
and A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty
As you may know I am a huge fan of both Eleanor and Park and Seraphina. A Corner of White recently came to my attention but now I will have to run down a copy and read it for myself.
Unlike the American Library Association book awards which are announced in January and cover books published during a calendar year, Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards cover books published during a given school year. That is how Seraphina, published in July 2012, and the other two books, published in 2013, end up being considered for the same award.

I can't wait to read Eleanor and Park! Heard so many good things about it, including from you.ReplyDelete
Glad to see it won an award.
