Oregon Book Awards

Kenn Amdahl’s novel, “Jumper and the Apple Crate” has just been named a finalist in the Oregon Book Awards for the “Leslie Bradshaw Award for Young Adult Literature.” There are four other finalists in the category, so it’s still a long shot. But hey, anytime they associate one of our books with the word “literature” we feel like we already won first prize.

Plus, it’s kind of cool that a Clearwater book would be competing with books from Poisoned Pen, Scholastic, Harper Teen, and Little Brown.
