The beautiful LIPS TOUCH by Laini Taylor with illustrations by Jim Di Bartolo is a National Book Award Finalist!

Frankfurt Buzz Alert:

Lipstouch2We had a prominent display of LIPS TOUCH at our booth (Laini and Jim were kind enough to sign copies for us, despite having their hands full with a newborn!) and many publishers remarked on the gorgeous finished copies. The eye-catching cover and Jim Di Bartolo’s striking interior illustrations drew lots of attention. The booth was positively buzzing on Day #2, just after we checked our Blackberries to find that the National Book Award news was announced.  (Winners will be announced on November 18th in New York City)

Booklist already gave this one a starred review, hailing it as “beautiful fantasy writing” that is “delicately structured and tantalizing”
