Prize Winner

The children’s book 'Elvis, Me, and the Lemonade Stand Summer' by Leslie Gentile won the $5,000 City of Victoria Children’s Book Prize. In their citation, the jury noted Gentile’s “first-rate storytelling, with a surprising plot twist, a twist on the twist, and a believable happy ending.” 

Synopsis: It’s the summer of 1978 and most people think Elvis Presley has been dead for a year. But eleven-year-old Truly knows Elvis is alive and well and living in her trailer park. 

She sets out to prove that the deceased Elvis Presley is not only alive but her next door neighbor.
