Congrats to Andre Norton Award winner E.C. Myers and FAIR COIN!

I'm so proud to congratulate E.C. Myers on winning the 2012 Andre Norton Award for his YA debut, FAIR COIN! The Andre Norton Award honors the best Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy Book of the year, and the winner is chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

Other nominees include Holly Black (Black Heart), David Levithan (Every Day), Libba Bray (The Diviners), and Rachel Hartman (Seraphina). What company, right?! For a complete list of winners and nominees, check out this link.

Eugene is not only a talented author, but he's also a funny, down-to-earth, friendly person whom I've been lucky enough to get to know through our local Philly Lit Night events. Congrats, Eugene!

Be sure to check out FAIR COIN and its sequel, QUANTAM COIN, which are available now!

The coin changed Ephraim's life. But how can he change it back?

Sixteen-year-old Ephraim Scott is horrified when he comes home from school and finds his mother unconscious at the kitchen table, clutching a bottle of pills. The reason for her suicide attempt is even more dis­turbing: she thought she'd identified Ephraim's body at the hospital that day.

Among his dead double's belongings, Ephraim finds a strange coin--a coin that grants wishes when he flips it. With a flick of his thumb, he can turn his alcoholic mother into a model parent and catch the eye of the girl he's liked since second grade. But the coin doesn't always change things for the better. And a bad flip can destroy other people's lives as easily as it rebuilds his own.

The coin could give Ephraim everything he's ever wanted--if he learns to control its power before his luck runs out.
