Up, up and away!
My spirits are soaring, thanks to the Ontario Library Association. OLA has chosen Shadows on the Train as one of its Best Bets for Children 2007. Here's what OLA had to say:

“Feisty Dinah, the spunky girl detective with the huge singing voice, once again solves a high-paced mystery with humour, energy and ingenuity. This time Dinah is being stalked by a dangerous man from her dead father’s past who will stop at nothing to retrieve a lost treasure. Jackson’s warm-hearted heroine tangles with shady characters, an ex-con, zany situations and learns about rare stamps in her inimitable way.”

Count nine clouds over. That's the one I'm on!
