Kirkus Reviews Books of the Year 2018 and USBBY Outstanding Books List 2019

While re-writing my bio for the US edition of The Way Past Winter (forthcoming from Chronicle Books in ‘Fall’ 2020), I discovered that The Island at the End of Everything was selected by Kirkus as one of their books of the year! Belatedly delighted, as Kirkus is the most influential literary reviewer in the US, and because Island is very much the book of my heart. It also appeared on the USBBY Outstanding International Books List 2019.
