Book News: National Book Award Winner 2015

At last night’s National Book Award ceremony, Neal Shusterman’s Challenger Deep took home the award for Young People’s Literature. Shusterman’s novel explores one fourteen year old boy’s experience of the onset of schizophrenia. Shusterman based his work in part on his own son’s experiences, and his son contributed the illustrations to the novel. The novel has also received accolades from all of the major critics, including Booklist which called the book “haunting, unforgettable, and life affirming all at once.” Our congratulations to Neal and Brendan Shusterman!
