IF YOU FIND ME nominated for the 2015 German Children’s Literature Award.

So honored to announce that IF YOU FIND ME, or as it’s titled in Germany, IF YOU FIND US, is one of six books nominated for the 2015 German Children’s Literature Award by the independent young adult jury.

Results will be announced in October, at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

So excited and so grateful!

A huge thanks to the jury and to my German young adult readers.

As the only female nominee in this category, I’m also proud to represent female writers of young adult fiction.


“The German Children’s Literature Award (Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis) is a prize for works of fiction sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Families, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. It has been awarded annually since 1956 by a jury of literature specialists and critics in four categories: picture book, children’s book, young adult book and non-fiction. In addition, since 2003 an independent young adult jury gives its own award.”

  1. Congratulations Emily,
    I am truly happy for you. What an honor. You must feel elated. If You Find Me is one of my favorite books. It is the story that haunts me. I’m certain that it is because my two granddaughters were that age when I read it, and if I tweaked the story line just a bit…I could have written a very similar fiction novel. I write YA and am wondering when you WIP might be released. Are there any release dates in mind?

  2. As always, wishing you all the best with your own writing. I bet it’s lovely!

    I hope to have news soon on a new book, and I’ll share it everywhere when I can.

    Hope you have a wonderful night … I smiled to see you here. Thanks for dropping by!
