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.

Cory Doctorow is a fast and furious storyteller who gets all the details of alternate reality gaming right, while offering a startling, new vision of how these games might play out in the high-stakes context of a terrorist attack. Little Brother is a brilliant novel with a bold argument: hackers and gamers might just be our country’s best hope for the future.
