Young Adult, Honorable Mention
Judge's Commentary: From the very first line to the very last page, I was captured bythis well-penned story of love, loss, and friendship. What an amazingidea--a story about a young boy who died as he was on the precipice ofcoming of age--and he still gets to experience this and much more frombeyond. While it is poignant yet heartbreaking, the author does a wonderful job throughout.... Nice opening hooks which keep the reader engaged all the way throughto the tear jerker of an epilogue.
