And I’m so excited to say that All the Murmuring Bones is on that list! As is Kathleen Jennings’ Flyaway, a book close to my heart.
Judges’ comments on All the Murmuring Bones:
Miren O’Malley is the last of the O’Malley lineage, a once-great family that now finds itself on hard times. An clever mix of gothic tale and short story, this brilliant novel builds a world that makes you believe in magic and monsters. Truly a magnificent achievement.
