Evolving in Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans, Creative Nonfiction (Zondervan)
She Walks in Beauty by Siri Mitchell, Historical Fiction (Bethany House)
The Knight by Steven James, Thriller/Suspense/Crime Fiction (Revell)
Green by Ted Dekker, Speculative Fiction (Thomas Nelson)
Sons of Thunder by Susan May Warren, Romance/Romantic Suspense (Summerside)
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr, Young Adult Fiction (Little, Brown)
I was one of the judges for the Young Adult Fiction category, and I’ll be reviewing Once Was Lost and some of the other books on the YA shortlist in the next few days. Suffice it to say for now, Once Was Lost tells an excellent story of a PK (preacher’s kid) whose family endures all the stresses that afflict other families and still God is faithful, if not always understandable.
Has anyone read any of the others on the list? What can you recommend?
