Without a doubt, it’s Cath Crowley’s week.
She has followed up her wonderful Gold Inky win at the start of the week with the Young Adult Book Award in the Queensland Literary Awards.
Cath is still travelling in France but Pan Macmillan accepted the award on her behalf.
This beautiful book deserves all the awards and congratulations it is receiving.
Well done to Cath from all of us.
About WORDS IN DEEP BLUE:
Words In Deep Blue is a love story. It’s the story of Howling Books, where readers write letters to strangers, to lovers, to poets, to words. It’s the story of Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie. They were best friends once, before Rachel moved to the sea.
Now, she’s back, working at the bookstore, grieving for her brother Cal. She’s looking for the future in the books people love, and the words that they leave behind.
