How to Steal a Dog won the South Carolina Children's Book Award!!
Two words: WOO HOO
This one is particularly meaningful.
First of all, it's voted on by children - the ultimate award!
And second of all, South Carolina is my home state.
Born and raised there.
Graduated from the University of South Carolina.
And heading down there on Thursday (sadly, for my mother's memorial service. She would have been tickled pink by this award. Sigh...)
