Like, I mean, a VERY good week…

It must be nominations season. I just found out Not Suitable for Family Viewing made it on another shortlist – this time, for The Canadian Library Association’s 2010 Young Adult Book Award.

This award recognizes an author of an outstanding English-language Canadian work of fiction published in 2009 that appeals to readers between the ages of 13 and 18.

The winner of the award and the Honour Books will be announced prior to the Canadian Library Association National Conference and Trade Show. The award will be presented on June 3 at the CLA conference in Edmonton.
