Rhode Island 2007 Teen Book Nominees
The wonderful librarians of Rhode Island have just published their list of nominees for the 2007 Teen Book Award, and Monsoon Summer made the list. I'm thrilled, of course! As a between-cultures postscript: just as in Scholastic's list of best Asian-American reads and Read Across America suggestions, where I am cited as "Mitala Perkins," my unfamiliar first name is mispelled on Rhode Island's list as "Matali." Would you let it go if this happened to you (a lot)?
