I’m delighted that Ruby Lee & Me has been nominated for a Sakura Medal! That means kids in Japan will be reading my book, as well as well as other wonderful titles, and voting for their favorites! Here’s more about the Sakura Medal:
My friend, Kathleen Burkinshaw’s book, The Last Cherry Blossom is also nominated in the Middle Grade category. Kathleen and I are founding members of the group #MGGetsReal. Congratulations to Kathleen!
