That’s right. You read that correctly. Another award nomination for SWIM THE FLY. The OLA Forest of Reading White Pine Award
How exciting is that? I’ll tell you how exciting. Very.
And the best part about the Ontario Library Associations White Pine Award is that it is voted on by teen readers from all across Ontario. So they will be voting for the book they enjoyed the most. And really, when you get right down to it (even though I’m sure the other nominees are all very good) how could you actually enjoy any book more than SWIM THE FLY? Unless of course you happen to be reading BEAT THE BAND. And then it’s just a toss up. Either one will leave you thoroughly satisfied. Not that I’m biased or anything.
Anyway, if you want to check out what amazing work the Ontario Library Association is doing with their Forest of Reading Program check out their website: OLA Forest of Reading
I want to shout out a big thank you to the Ontario Library Association for including the book on this list.
