Hats Off! to Judy Dearlove whose novel Play On! has been named a finalist for the INDIES Book of the Year award. Play On!, a stand-up-and-cheer tale of epic rivalry and deep friendship, has been lauded as “the funniest book . . . in years” (Frank McNair) and “a brisk and joyful first novel by a wise woman” (Georgann Eubanks). It was also featured in Shelf Unbound’s recommended reading list in the Summer issue (pages 62-63) and was the focus of Dearlove’s interview in Allison Kirkland’s Creatives in Conversation series.
