I’m thrilled to be able to share that the first book in the TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE series, IT’S ALIVE!, has been chosen by the Junior Library Guild as a Fall 2017 selection for the Elementary Nonfiction category (for grades 2-6).
This is very exciting news, because it means the book will be heading to libraries across the country for kids to check out and enjoy!
It’s also really encouraging, because, according to their website, the JLG editorial team reviews over 3,000 new titles each year and selects only around 800 for the program. The Junior Library Guild Selection designation is unique in that it is typically awarded far in advance of publication. As one of the first awards given throughout the life of a book, it is often viewed as a bellwether of future success, with more than 95 percent of JLG selections going on to receive awards and/or favorable reviews!
So, keep your fingers crossed. Here’s hoping for even more good news yet to come!
