About the LEAP BOOKS Silver Falchion Award™ nominees:
Award-winning and bestselling author of TUNNEL VISION, Gary Braver says, “KILLER'S INSTINCT by Dawn Dalton and Judith Graves is a clever and fast-paced thriller that raises the bar for monster-hunting tales."
In bestselling author Maria V. Snyder's STORM WATCHER Luke Riley is lost. His mother’s recent death has set Luke and his family adrift. Even though his father, twin brothers, and their three bloodhounds are search-and-rescue volunteers, they have been unable to rescue themselves and become a family again. Luke's decision to go against his father's wishes may do much more than change the outcome of one summer--it may change all of their lives.
YA and MG author Patrice Lyle's nominated title THE CASE OF THE INVISIBLE WITCH features thirteen-year-old Tulip Bonnaire, Witch PI, who runs Spells & Spies out of her dorm room at Poison Ivy Charm School, a school for polite witches and warlocks. She has only 72 hours to figure out her latest case, or her classmate, Missy, will never be seen again. Literally.
The Silver Falchion Award™ will be chosen by the conference attendees and announced at the awards banquet.
A big CONGRATULATIONS to our LEAP authors!
