ABA Indies Choice Book Awards
The American Booksellers Association has announced the winners of the inaugural Indies Choice Book Awards (formerly the Book Sense Book of the Year Awards). The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman was named Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book, and the five Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Honor Books were:
1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore;
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins;
3. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow;
4. My Most Excellent Year by Steve Kluger;
5. Savvy by Ingrid Law.
In addition, Sherman Alexie, author of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, was named Most Engaging Author.
Great choices. But I would have given it to The Hunger Games!
