Golden Boy in School Library Journal’s ‘Best Books of 2013’! 22/11/13

Golden Boy is one of three Atria Books titles to be selected by the School Library Journal as one of the best books of 2013! Also selected is Ordinary Grace,  by William Kent Krueger, which I absolutely loved, and also came out from my editor at Atria! Very honoured to be mentioned with this book – and also alongside Neil Gaiman! WOW!

SLJ says about Golden Boy:

“TARTTELIN, Abigail. Golden Boy . S & S/Atria. Tr $24.99. ISBN 9781476705804.

Attractive, charismatic Max is intersex, born with both male and female organs. He’s able to keep it a non-issue until he hits puberty. But after suffering a violent rape, the young man realizes that he must be the one to claim his own sexuality. Teens will love kindhearted Max, whose journey through adolescence is a nightmare few will experience. (ow.ly/qAXAN)”
