Donnelly wins Carnegie medal

Jennifer Donnelly has won the annual Carnegie medal for children's books with her novel for teenagers, A Gathering Light.

As the BBC reports:
Donnelly struggled for a decade before being published last year aged 39. As a struggling would-be author, she took various jobs by day and wrote by night. She was rejected by nearly every publishing house in New York, but last year her first novel made it into print.
