Heavy Medal Finalist: SWEEP by Jonathan Auxier

sweep

Jonathan Auxier’s SWEEP is the final book in our Heavy Medal Finalists discussion. Heavy Medal Committee member DaNae notes that the author “deftly builds instant empathy. He exposes just enough vulnerability to open an itch of dread, yet overlies it with a wisp of hope, assuring us that our hearts are in good hands.”
