2021 Newbery Honor and Odyssey Honor!
I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Fighting Words has received a Newbery Honor medal and an Odyssey Honor from the American Library Association!! I am so incredibly happy and grateful. As I’ve said many times, this book is my heart. Thank you to Bahni Turpin for the wonderful audio narration.
All my congratulations to Newbery Medal winner Tae Keller, author of When You Trap a Tiger, my fellow honorees, and to all the other winners of the ALA Youth Media Awards!
