The sentence "It won the Goncourt Prize for high school students" implies that this was an award given to student authors. In fact the Prix Goncourt des Lyceens is a prize voted upon by secondary school students, but the honorees are of any age. Shan Sa was 28 and already known for her previous novels when she won it. Also, because it is an award voted by teenagers, it is probably not the most prestigious award she's won and therefor not the one most deserving of being listed in the opening paragraph.
