Listen Up, Diary! The Day Nansi Made Journaling Cool Again
NOMINATED FOR THE 2020 CRITICS’ PRIZE
From the Critics’ Prize jury’s statement:
It’s a wise and humorous story about the importance of friendship, and about growing up as a third culture child. The story is “written in the pen” by Nansi, whose prose is special and distinctive due to her being a “duxesic” (dyslexic) struggling to learn a new language. (…) This clever, smart book gives the reader insight into the struggle to embrace a new language, and describes an east side environment with warmth and credibility.
