Winning awards-- Real Book Awards

I've been stalking the website since the beginning of November when they announced that they'd announce the winners "Mid-November". Let me just say, that since November has 30 days, one would think they would post the winners on Nov. 15. But alas, I had to wait a whole extra day until the 16th to discover that AT WHAT COST was chosen as a finalist in the 'Youth Issues' category. YIPPIE!

The contest was the 2012 USA Book News annual contest.

And my book was a finalist! Isn't that awesome? Now I can officially say that it is an award winning finalist or that I'm an award winning author. The whole idea is foreign to me, but I'm appreciative anyway.

I feel like celebrating. Wanna join me? Great, just talk up the book and enter through the Rafflecopter below.
