I've just been told that VOYA, a bimonthly journal for educators who work with young adults, has put Flora Segunda on their list of Best Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror of 2006. Apparently, at some point in the past, Flora was reviewed in VOYA, and earned a "prestigious" 5Q rating. I'm not sure exactly what 5Q means, but it sounds cool, eh?
Later: Poking around the VOYA website, I discover that 5Q means: "hard to imagine it being better written."
Thank you, VOYA!
