Tim’s novel, Unstoppable, was nominated for this award. The Iowa Center for the Book (ICB) is a program of Iowa Library Services/State Library and an affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The mission of the ICB is to stimulate public interest in books, reading, literacy and libraries. The ICB Advisory Council provides advice to the State Librarian and the Coordinator of the Iowa Center for the Book about activities and policies, and helps implement programs. In March, teens across Iowa take part in the nomination of books for the Iowa Teen Award. These books are reviewed by the ITA committee and volunteer readers and the list is narrowed. During the summer, the adult readers read and rate the titles. The committee members finalize the list a year ahead of time.
