Mitali Perkins as been given an Honor Award from Skipping Stones Magazine.
"There's nothing I enjoy more than a good love story, but I didn't expect to be so emotionally pulled into this tale. I was spellbound by the details ... It was a book that both educated and inspired ..." Editor Fran├žoise Bui

Mitali says:

"This is one of those awards that dovetails with my personal vision as a write', honoring books that 'promote cooperation and cultivate an awareness of our diverse cultures." Thank you, Skipping Stones!"

Give it up for Mitali, rgz! We love Secret Keeper, and our rgz Talent Scout!
