January 15, 2005 -- Library Journal, which gave THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US by Masha Hamilton a Starred review, names it "one of the best books of 2004".

Here is what Library Journal says about its selection: "Interestingly, LJ departs completely from both the NBA [National Book Award] and the Times in its fiction choices and shares only one nonfiction pick with the latter, which shows you just how subjective awards can be. We're not trying to stir up controversy, just a passion for reading, and we believe that our list includes the most persuasive books published this year—regardless of hype."
