has been nominated as one of only five finalists for the Firecracker Alternative Book Award in the category of Fiction.

Nominations of books published in 1999 have been gathered from a nationally recognized panel of book sellers and reviewers.

Although this title has been selected for the New York Public Library's Best of the TeenAge List for 2000, and Nominated as one of the Best Young Adult Books of the Year by the American Library Association, the Firecracker Alternative Book award recognizes its unqualified excellence in the category of fiction.

You can really help this difficult-to-categorize novel win the attention it deserves by voting on-line, before the polls close on May 5, 2000.


Many thanks from all of us at Leapfrog Press!
