Success in the U.S.

I just received the very nice news from my American publisher, Random House, that Flip has been selected for the 2012 IRA Young Adults reading list. (I hasten to point out that IRA, in this instance, stands for International Reading Association – an organisation of literacy professionals, not terrorists.)

Each year since 1987, IRA’s Young Adults’ Choices project has unveiled a list of new books that will encourage adolescents to read. The titles are selected by the readers themselves – middle and secondary school students – and the list is a trusted source of book recommendations by young people, their parents, teachers and librarians.

So, I’m delighted that Flip has won the seal of approval from American teenagers.
