For the Win selected for Kansas State Reading Circle; Little Brother wins Vermont’s Green Mountain Book Award
This week, I was delighted to learn that my novel For the Win was one of three young adult novels selected for the the Kansas National Education Association's Kansas State Reading Circle list; and then to learn that the Vermont School Library Association, Vermont Library Association and the Vermont Department of Libraries had awarded the state's Green Mountain Book Award to my novel Little Brother, this being a readers' choice award for students in grades 9-12. My sincere thanks to the readers, teachers and librarians who've chosen my books for these honors -- they mean the world to me.

It’s about growing up in the near future where things have kept going on the way they’ve been going, and it’s about hacking as a habit of mind, but mostly it’s about growing up and changing and looking at the world and asking what you can do about that. The teenage voice is pitch-perfect. I couldn’t put it down, and I loved it.
