Books Save Lives Award!

I was so excited to learn that Openly Straight won Honorable Mention in the 2015 Joan F. Kaywell Books Save Lives Award!

The award went to my friend Meg Medina for her wonderful novel, Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass. So well deserved! I love, love, love that book.

The award is named after Joan F. Kaywell, a professor of English Education at University of South Florida. Kaywell is a huge name in the world of English Education. She’s past president of the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents (ALAN) and currently serves as its membership secretary.

I’m so honored to be associated with this award!
