The Magnolia Award is a Children's Choice Award for the State of Mississippi. I'm honored to be nominated and in awe to be in such great company. This means a lot to me because I lived in Jackson, Mississippi when I was in sixth and (part of) seventh grades, the age of many of my readers. Voting will be in February 2015. Thank you, Mississippi readers!

The Selective Collective is a group of 5 blogs/7 bloggers who join to together to feature a book at the same time in a different way. Check out how they covered 45 POUNDS.
Diana and Sandie at Teen Lit Rocks did a review.
Brittany at The Book Addict's Guide did an interview + giveaway.
Kristina and Daphne at Gone Pecan cast the book for their Page to Screen feature.
I love how each of these posts take a facet of the book and explores it--the serious topics and undertones and the humor. Thank you, Selective Collective!
