It feels almost unbelievable to write, but This One Summer, which I co-created with my cousin Mariko Tamaki, won a Caldecott honour and a Printz Award.

Thanks to librarians, for these honours and, just, generally. To be perfectly honest, Mariko and I never thought we were making YA books when we started with SKIM. It was our publishers and librarians who connected us with this wonderful audience. Thank-you for that. <3
