(or honoured, if you happen to be reading this in England)
FIVE FLAVORS OF DUMB has been nominated for the 2012-13 Gateway Award. Actual Live Teens get to vote on which book should win, which makes this award particularly meaningful.
DUMB was also selected as a 2011 Notable Book for Global Society. Here, the chair of the selection committee explains what the award means, and why it matters. It’s a very interesting and valuable insight.
And super blogger Audrey named DUMB her book of the month. Piper’s very grateful. And so, for that matter, am I!
A Happy Labor Day weekend to all.
