Book award nominee withdraws – Yahoo! News

Book award nominee withdraws – Yahoo! News.

Award-winning and sometimes controversial YA author Lauren Myracle has been in the news the past week. Her book Shine received acclaim and outrage when it was released in May 2011. The book follows a small-town girl’s search for the truth about what happened during an attack on her recently estranged, gay friend.

Myracle’s book was mistakenly placed on the list of nominees for the young people’s literature section of the National Book Awards. Read the linked article for more about the miscommunication that has landed Myracle and Shine in the center of another controversy – this time NOT of her own making.
