The Sister Season by Jennifer Scott came from NAL Accent.
My only sibling is my younger sister so I am always attracted to stories about other sisters, especially stories about more than one sister. And a tale set at the holidays when sisters come home as a family for the first time in a long time and face the past that scattered them so far apart is especially appealing.
Good Kings, Bad Kings by Susan Nussbaum came from Algonquin Paperbacks and LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The Bellwether Award has had wonderful recipients in the past and I expect this one to be every bit as good as the rest. A story set in a home for teenagers with disabilities, this sounds simply amazing.
