One of the interviewers asked Ruby, how she felt and what was the first thing came in her mind when her name was announced for the award. Ruby was happy to answer the question. She told that she was thinking whether it was she. Ruby heard the committee saying that 2015 is a promising year where there were several amazing books published. The Bone Gap is a mind blowing book. She thought that it may look like an odd book, and she was not sure that it would make a great effect when it got published.
