Please excuse me while I hyperventilate.
I am beyond excited and humbled and might just be bouncing off the walls. Like COMPLETELY bouncing.
I’m in great company with other wonderful runners up, and I highly encourage y’all to go check out the lists of all Rainbow Award Winners and runners up and find yourself some great books to read. I went on a buying binge from last year’s list and I did not regret it.
Congratulations to all finalists, honorable mentions, runners up, and winners. It is fantastic to see that there are so many wonderful books out there.
