"Iron Hearted Violet," a young-adult novel by Minneapolis writer Kelly Barnhill, has been nominated for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy, part of the prestigious annual Nebula Awards.

 

Barnhill's book is about a reckless princess, a forbidden book (the best kind!) and a cowardly dragon.

She is also the author of "The Mostly True Story of Jack."

Here's our review of "Iron Hearted Violet."

The Nebula Awards will be announced in mid-May in San Jose, Calif.
