Isabel Quintero a Finalist for Morris Award
Isabel Quintero a Finalist for Morris Award December 9, 2014
--Bobby Byrd

The accolades keep coming in for Isabel Quintero's GABI, A GIRL IN PIECES. And now the Young Adult Library Services Association has nominated Isabel as one of its five finalists for the Morris Award which honors the Best Debut Author of the Year. YALSA will announce the Morris Winner February 2 at the ALA Mid-Winter Convention in Chicago. Isabel's GABI has already received STARRED reviews from Kirkus, Booklist and Publisher Weekly, and has been listed as one of the Best Books of the Year by Kirkus, Booklist, and the New York Public Library. Felicidades to Isabel! And to the great young lady Gabi too! As the Kirkus Review said, "Readers won't soon forget Gabi, a young woman coming into her own in the face of intense pressure from her family, culture and society to fit someone else's idea of what it means to be a ‘good’ girl. A fresh, authentic and honest exploration of contemporary Latina identity."
