Pleased--and a bit amazed--to report that the finalists have been announced for the 23rd Annual Lambda Literary Awards, and Jumpstart the World is a finalist in not one but two categories. It's one of five finalists in Children's/Teen Fiction and one of three finalists in Transgender Fiction. This is a great honor and I am grateful. And, as I mentioned, surprised.
Here is the link to the complete list of finalists and to the article about the Children's/Teens category in School Library Journal.
Fingers crossed for May 26th.
