Governor General's Award Nomination!

Congratulations to my dear friend and fellow author, Shelley Hrdlitschka, for her nomination for Canada's most prestigious literary award--the Governor General's Award for Literature in the Children and Youth Category. Wow! That is a wonderful achievement. Her nominated book, Sister Wife, tells the heart-wrenching story of a teenage girl living in a restrictive polygamous community, and the choices she must make for her future.

I've been friends with Shelley for a long time and I know how hard she works and also how talented she is. If there's anyone who deserves this nomination, it's her! Hooray!

If you haven't read the book, go straight to your local library or bookstore. It's a book well worth reading.

Congratulations, Shelley! Fingers crossed. :-)

Colder weather is book weather - for sure!
