Kirkus Prize Finalist

As announced in this morning’s New York Times, Fighting Words has been named one of six finalists for this year’s Kirkus Prize for Children’s Literature, alongside Jason Reynolds’ adaption of Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped, Derrick Barnes and Gordon C. James’ I Am Every Good Thing, Carole Lindstrom and Michaela Goade’s We Are Water Protectors, Hanna Alkaf’s The Girl and the Ghost, and Elizabeth Acevedo’s Clap When You Land.

So thrilled to be in the company of these books.
