Congratulations Stephanie Kuehn, Morris Award Winner For CHARM & STRANGE

Every once in a while, great things happen to great people, and we all get to wear a smile all day (with a huge fist-pump) in celebration. Today is one of those days!

This morning it was announced that YA Highwayer Stephanie Kuehn's debut novel, CHARM & STRANGE, has been named the 2014 Morris Award winner! The William C. Morris YA Debut Award, first awarded in 2009, "honors a debut book published by a first-time author writing for teens and celebrating impressive new voices in young adult literature."

We are so thrilled for Steph, and proud of her, too. CHARM & STRANGE is a beautiful book and well deserving of any and all honors!

The CHARM & STRANGE stack at St. Martin's ALA Midwinter conference booth yesterday in Phildelphia, where the winners were announced this morning.
