The IPPYs were very good to Flux this year!
Congratulations are in order for Carrie Jones whose debut Tips on Having a Gay (ex) Boyfriend took home gold for best young adult novel (in a tie with The Night Wanderer: A Native Gothic Novel by Drew Hayden Taylor). Simone Elkeles is also a gold medalist in the multicultural children's fiction category for her third novel, How to Ruin My Teenage Life.
Congratulations Simone and Carrie!
This is the second time a Flux author has taken the best YA IPPY. Christine MacLean did it with How It's Done in 2006.
