The House in the Cerulean Sea is the multiple award-winning fantasy novel by TJ Klune, published in December of 2020 by Tor Books.  The committee was absolutely captivated by this book because of its themes of love, acceptance and kindness, calling it “an enchanting read”, “heartwarming and charming” and “pure happiness”.
