Despite the crisp autumn air, Summer Days, Starry Nights is still kicking around! I was thrilled to see a shiny red star next to Summer Days, Starry Nights in the Fall 2013 edition of Best Books for Kids & Teens. Days That End in Y also got a mention, which means that all three Clarissa books have been recognized by this educational resource. I spent a very happy year on the selection committee for this publication in my reviewing days and I know all the reading, deliberating, and careful evaluation that goes into this process. Thank you, thank you, thank you to the committee for recognizing my books!
I was also thrilled to learn that Summer Days was nominated for a Cybils award in the Middle Grade Fiction category! The Cybils are administered and evaluated by the book blogging community.
