Many of us have seen the Young Adult “readers choice” award contests going around the blogsphere. They’re fun, and they’re interesting…but, sadly, contemporary stories often get buried beneath the other genres.
For that reason, my group blog For the Love of Contemporary is holding its very own CONTEMPORARY AWARDS. You can play along September 3rd through the 17th!
