We are pleased to announce that Daniel Jose Older’s SHADOWSHAPER has been nominated for the ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults list. This list is created once a year to provide school librarians with a resource to collect the best books for teens.

SHADOWSHAPER is an action-packed urban fantasy, filled with street art, Brooklyn house parties, zombies, and Caribbean magic. Kirkus calls it “Warm, strong, vernacular, dynamic–a must,” and New York Times Book Review says, “This is a world that readers cannot help wanting to live in.”

In other SHADOWSHAPER news, German rights were just sold to Carlsen. Congratulations, Daniel! This is a book you don’t want to miss.
