AIRBORN on "Decade's Best Books" list

I was thrilled and surprised to discover that Quill & Quire magazine has given Airborn an Honourable Mention in its list of "The Decade's Best Books."

Among the fourteen Canadian titles selected were Yann Martel's Life of Pi, Lawrence Hill's The Book of Negroes, Alice Munro's Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, and Miriam Toews' A Complicated Kindness. The only other children's title on the list is Deborah Ellis's The Breadwinner.

Airborn
was also named a Best Kid's Book of the Decade by Indigo Books.

It's a great honour to be amongst such illustrious company -- and a great way to head into the New Year of writing...

  1. Being my favorite book, I think it deserves more than just an honourable mention. I just read Airborn earlier this week, and I've been trying to get everyone I know to read it (finished Skybreaker too, and on Starclimber now). You just knocked Ender's Game and Lord of the Rings off of their best books title for me.
