SCARS in the YALSA TOP 10 Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers!

And not only is it in the top ten–it is NUMBER ONE! (grinning and grinning)

SCARS is the #1 Book on the 2011 YALSA Top Ten Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers!

I’m wanting to laugh and to cry. It’s SO good to have good news. To know that Scars will reach more teens who need it. To know that librarians value Scars. That they can see it’s reaching teens already. It’s just…WOW.

On the ALA website, it lists the Top Ten books alphabetically, by author. And there I am! (beaming)

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
