Rebels By Accident Shortlisted for the Firecracker Award by CLMP
(Community of Literary Magazines and Presses)
“Presented by CLMP, with the help of the American Booksellers Association (ABA) and a team of publishing professionals, the Firecrackers seek to celebrate and promote great literary works from independent literary publishers and self-published authors. We’re looking for language that smolders, crackles or explodes on the page. We’re looking for voices we’ve never heard and will never forget. The Firecrackers will spotlight books that make a permanent contribution to our literary culture and introduce them to readers far and wide.”
AITE High School, Stamford CT, chooses Rebels by Accident as their required school-wide summer read!
Rebels By Accident – Now Available!
“a powerful coming-of-age story… Dunn allows Mariam’s voice its space—making it tentative, passionate, doubting, and utterly believable—while creating a cast of Cairo youth, rebels, and expatriates that upend Mariam’s preconceptions and will do the same for many readers.”
It was an honor recommending you for the YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers. Thank you so much for all you have done for the students of Yonkers Public Schools. Your book and author visit with our Saunders High school Honor students was very important part of teaching and learning this year. I hope we will have the opportunity to work together again in the future.
I believe it is an important YA book that promotes peace and multicultural understanding.
