Hurrah!! Sherman Alexie has won the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature! His brilliant, amazing The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is my favorite teen novel of the year. I don’t think I have ever had my favorite win the NBA. So hurrah! Hurrah!
I heard it on NPR on my way to work and restrained myself to loud cheers and a happy dance, refraining from honking the horn and flashing my lights in glee.
