An American Library Association Quick Pick(le)…

ALA Quick PickHot-diggety-dog! Hold the Pickles – my recent sequel to Pigboy – has just been nominated as an American Library Association Quick Pick for Young Adults.

The Quick Picks list identifies books which encourage reading among teens who, for whatever reason, dislike to read.

“And who wouldn’t want to read Hold the Pickles?” she asks modestly.

As Booklist said, “Filled with gross-out details of snot and slime, as well as simple wordplay, this short novel in the Orca Currents series for reluctant readers combines everyday scenarios with a clever mystery that ends with a surprising revelation.”

Gross-out details? Snot? Slime? And a clever mystery?  Sounds like this hotdog comes with the works.
