Today, the 2010 OLA Forest of Reading nominees were announced and Cracked Up to Be is one of them.
It is a nominee for The White Pine Award.
When I found out, I was like what wait wait wait what what WHAT what what WAT.
And then I refreshed the nominees page a lot, just waiting for the cover image of Parker on the bench to somehow disappear. Because, to be honest, I did not get a lot of sleep last night so I wasn’t entirely convinced what I was seeing was real. Maybe someone had hacked my computer?
But then I got confirmation from my publisher that it WAS real.
And then I was like what wait wait wait what what WHAT what what WAT.
And I have been so completely shocked and thrilled and just like WHAT REALLY about it ever since, I don’t know what else to say.
OH WAIT, ok, I got my sister to pinch me a couple of times and nothing happened, so I feel relatively certain this is not a dream. But I do kind of worry that I am in a coma and this is one of those coma realities AND HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE IN ONE OF THOSE?
DOES ANYONE KNOW.
