SPARKS by SJ Adams (that's me) has made the ALA's "Rainbow List," a list of great GLBT themed books for younger readers. They describe it as follows:
Adams, S.J. Sparks: the Epic, Completely True Blue, (Almost) Holy Quest of Debbie. 2011. 256p. Flux, $9.95 (9780738726762). Grades 9-12.
“$5 for a holy quest” is a good deal when you’re on a desperate chase to reveal your secret lesbian crush to your best friend before she breaks her abstinence pledge with the most boring guy at school.
There are a whole lot great books on the list this year!
Sparks is one of my favorites of my own books; using "SJ Adams" as a pseudonym didn't really pan out (I might not have used it at all if Extraordinary hadn't been coming out under my own name around the same time), but the SJ page is still up over here.
