If I wore a bonnet, I would have a bee in it today. I've learned that The Year of Goodbyes is a 2012-2013 Nominee for the Beehive Book Awards, sponsored by the Children's Literature Association of Utah (CLAU). The Beehive Book Award winner will be chosen from the nominated books by the children of Utah, who will vote for their favorites. I'm really happy that, thanks to its place on this list, The Year of Goodbyes will find new readers among the young people of Utah.
