Nikki Sheehan nominated for Carnegie Medal again
Congratulations to Nikki for her Carnegie Medal nomination (for the second year running) this time for her latest novel ‘Goodnight Boy’.
“The kennel has been JC’s home ever since his new adoptive father locked him inside. For hours on end, JC sits and tells his dog Boy how he came to this country: his family, the orphanage and the Haitian earthquake that swept everything away.
When his adoptive mother Melanie rescues him, life starts to feel normal again. Until JC does something bad, something that upset his new father so much that he and Boy are banished to the kennel. But as his new father gets sicker, JC realises they have to find a way out. And so begins a stunning story of a boy, a dog and their journey to freedom.”
Good Luck Nikki from all of us here at Authors Abroad.
