Yay! I'm so glad, the winner of the Governor General's Awards were announced today and the winner of the Children's Award was Gemini Summer by Iain Lawrence. It was my favourite of the nominees, though I wasn't able to get a copy of one of the nominees.
You can read my review of Gemini Summer by Iain Lawrence.
And my reviews of the others on the shortlist are:
Elijah of Buxton by Christopher Paul Curtis
The Alchemist's Dream by John Wilson
Kanada by Eva Wiseman
