His books have been named to dozens of state young readers’ lists and honored by the New York Public Library, the Society of School Librarians International, the Winnetka (Illinois) Public Library’s "One Book, Two Villages" program, and the Washington State Public Library. His 2010 young adult novel Epitaph Road was a nominee for the 2013–2014 Nebraska Golden Sower Book Award. His 2018 alternative history/sci-fi young adult novel Fast Backward has garnered much praise.
