THE CARNIVAL AT BRAY Snaps Up Three Prizes!

It’s awards time in the USA, and THE CARNIVAL AT BRAY by Jessie Ann Foley (Elephant Rock Books) has been named a Michael L. Printz Award Honors Book!

020115 ALA MidwinterIn 1993, Maggie is dismayed to leave Chicago and her beloved Uncle Kevin behind when she moves to a small Irish town. Yet it is within this evocative setting that Foley unwinds Maggie’s exceptional coming-of-age tale, where Maggie discovers music and forgiveness as antidotes for grief.

THE CARNIVAL AT BRAY was also chosen as one of the Young Adult Library Services Association’s 2015 Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults and was a finalist for the William C. Morris YA Debut Award.

Congratulations all round!
