WEIRD GIRL AND WHAT'S HIS NAME Named to 2017 Rainbow Book List!

I am so incredibly proud to announce that Meagan Brothers's Weird Girl and What's His Name (Three Rooms Press, 2015), has been named to the 2017 Rainbow Book List

From their website: 

The Rainbow Book List Committee proudly announces the 2017 Rainbow Book List.  The Rainbow Book List is a bibliography of books with significant gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer/questioning content, which are aimed at youth, birth through age 18.  The list is intended to aid youth in selecting high-quality books that were published between July 2015 and December 2016.  The list is also intended to aid as a collection development or readers’ advisory took for librarians serving children and young adults.
The committee members evaluated nearly 270 books from small, independent, and large publishers, and selected 47 books from 24 publishers for the 2017 Rainbow Book List.

This is such an important list, now more than ever, and I am so proud that this book I care about so deeply has been chosen for such an honor. If you haven't read Weird Girl and What's His Name yet, I highly recommend it. This is a necessary book.
