Not only did Carrie have three books published this year, but ALL of them were nominated for the Cybils Awards! This might be a first.
Love (And Other Uses for Duct Tape) and Girl Hero have both been nominated in the YA Category; Need (fantasy) was also nominated, but isn't eligible until next year because of its late 2008 publication date.
I have a soft spot for Carrie's oeuvre because Tips on Having a Gay (Ex) Boyfriend was the first book I read last year for the Cybils when I was on the YA panel, and I fell hard for Tom.
So congratulations Carrie!
If you haven't nominated your own YA favorite, Becky has posted a handy list of really good 2008 books that haven't made it yet...
