My devious plan to corrupt Southern youth proceeds apace:

"The purpose of the Georgia Peach Award is to highlight and promote the best current young adult literature for Georgia high school age students, to encourage young adults to read and to promote the development of cooperative school and public library services for young adults. Teens vote for their favorite books out of the year's top 20 nominees at their high schools and local public libraries."

Many thanks to the nominators, and congratulations to my fellow nominees:

Bad Monkeys is for KIDS?! But it might give them, I dunno, Ideas.

Not a bad list to be on, certainly. Cool!
