I can’t blunder off into the season of total gluttony, sloth and festive lighting without giving thanks to those who have singled out The Truth Commission for special mention this year. I’m grateful to everyone who has read the book, written about the book and especially, those who have championed it.
Over the past few weeks The Truth Commission has been chosen as a:
A Barnes and Noble Best Young Adult Book of 2015
A Globe and Mail Best Book of 2015
A Kirkus Best Teen Book of 2015
A Quill and Quire Best Kids’ Book of the Year
A CBC Top Pick for Youth and Teens for Christmas
A Stand-Out YA Book of 2015 (Bookshelves of Doom)
A Canadian Children’s Book Centre Great Holiday Read for 2015
Thank you to the editors who included it. It means the world to me. And I will take this last opportunity to encourage people to buy copies of The Truth Commission and Republic of Dirt. My motto is: shameless self promotion for the holidays!
