I’m so thrilled for Caroline Pignat – her young adult novel, Greener Grass, just won the Governor General’s Medal for Children’s Literature! The book was published earlier this year and edited by Peter Carver (who will be editing my Lost Boys novel as well!) I met Caroline at Peter and Kathy Stinson’s writing retreat in Port Joli two summers ago; I haven’t read her novel yet, but the excerpts of her writing which she did read at PJ were remarkable, her talent obvious, and I’m sure this recognition is very well-deserved. I must stop by The Box of Delights to see if they have a copy… I can’t begin to imagine how excited Caroline must be!
