What's that? You don't know what the Rainbow List is?
The Rainbow Project is a joint undertaking of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Round Table and the Social Responsibilities Round Table of the American Library Association. The annual Rainbow List presents current well-written and/or well-illustrated books, with significant and authentic GLBTQ content, which are recommended for people from birth through eighteen years of age.
Juby's book also made the American Library Association's 2009 list of Best Books for Young Adults.
Well-deserved honours, and a much nicer reception than the book had closer to home last year when it was pulled from a middle school library in Stettler, Alberta. (Freedom to Read, anyone?)
Hey, Susan, I'm thinking somebody should be making this book into a movie ... what do you say?
