King's book is up for an award in the Favorite Children's Book category. When Your Parents Divorce, a kid-to-kid guide to dealing with divorce is a book for children and parents to help them learn to understand and cope with the challenges of a divorce in a less-stressful, collaborative way.

Entries are being reviewed and evaluated on popular vote, social contribution, and overall presentation (cover, content, flow, and originality) by the Academy's voting membership comprised of best-selling authors, literary agents and industry leaders.
