Bitter, Sweet by Laura Best

Okay, I really am going to stop posting new posts today–but after just one more happy blurt.

My friend and fellow writer (who I admit I only know online, through her great blog, but she lives in the province second only to mine–and yours if you’re a fellow Canadian, lol), Laura Best just had her novel Bitter, Sweet make it onto the CBC Canada Reads list. See what the reviewer had to say about Bitter, Sweet here. (And omigoodness, Laura, you must’ve been so excited. What a great, deserved compliment!)

Bitter, Sweet also shortlisted for the Geoffrey Bilson Award For Historical Fiction For Young People. If you’re buying books for Christmas presents (and of course you are), you should seriously consider adding this to the pile. 🙂

Is it tacky to promote your friend’s books? Absolutely not. How else do you figure out what a next read should be? 😉

Congratulations again, Laura. Though I didn’t comment on your blog, I was really thrilled by your news!

  1. Ev, so sweet of you to mention Bitter, Sweet on your site! I didn’t make it on the top 40 list, but it was pretty exciting seeing it on the Canada Reads site nonetheless. And thanks Jen for the congrats!
