VANISHING ACTS wins Oregon Spirit Honor Award

Phillip Margolin and Ami Margolin Rome's middle grade novel, VANISHING ACTS, has received the Honor Award from the Oregon Spirit Book Award Committee!  The award is given annually by the Oregon Council of Teachers of English (OCTE).  The authors will receive the award at a ceremony in October, just in time for the paperback release of VANISHING ACTS.

VANISHING ACTS was released in hardcover in October 2011 from HarperCollins.  It was praised by School Library Journal for having "just the right number of twists and turns" and by Booklist for its "pull[ing] a few Nancy Drew parallels into a wholly contemporary story" and for its "realistic emotional tensions."
