Thrilled beyond measure to announce that SPARKS has been named as one of the Stonewall Honor books, not to mention the ALA's Rainbow List, for 2013! There I was, sitting in the bathroom (as one always is when these things happen) when my phone started going nuts on my desk.
Lesson: watched pots never boil; spend more time in the bathroom away from your phone.
I may even start posting as SJ again. Normally, you can follow me under my usual name, Adam Selzer , both at that home page and on twitter.
SO pleased and hoping this leads more people to read the book!
