SHINE Makes The Smithsonian List

Wow: SHINE, COCONUT MOON is on the Smithsonian Notable Books for Children 2009 list! I'm very honoured, and slightly dazed. Most unexpected for this little writer. The only other book I recognized was MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD, which I am ashamed to say that I have not read yet (but is on my TBR pile).

What wonderful news to wake up to on a stark Saturday morning (with an impending snow storm on the horizon)!!

YAY! *thtows confetti in the air* That is awesome news Neesha and Shine, Coconut Moon defnitely deserves it :D That's definitely one of the best things to wake up to on a bleak Saturday.
I'm very interested in reading what you have to say after reading Marcelo in the Real World (no pressure or anything, just when you get to it) :)
