Kylie Lawson was praised for her book, “The Planet Realm,” which won Best of Show both at Nord Middle School and all of Lorain County in the annual Young Authors competition. A sixth-grader at Nord, Lawson wrote the book as an assignment for teacher Jamie Sexton. “I don’t know if I could be any prouder if it was my own daughter up on stage,” Sexton told the Amherst board of education Monday.
