The End is Near
The end of the year has come, bringing with it, among other things, Best Books of the Year lists. I’m very happy that Moonshot appears on several: Kirkus Reviews’ Best Children’s Books of 2009 (Requiescat in pace, Kirkus), Book Links’ Lasting Connections of 2009, School Library Journal’s Best Books 2009, Horn Book Magazine’s Fanfare Best Books of 2009, Booklist’s Editors’ Choice 2009, and the Washington Post’s Best Kids Books of 2009.
My sincere thanks to all, and best wishes to all for 2010!
