Carnegie Prize Shortlist 2014

Sunday, 13 April 2014
From the Guardian:
"This year's CILIP Carnegie medal shortlist is really unusual because half of the nominated titles deal with themes of kidnap and captivity! All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry sees a missing girl returning home after two years; a boy is kept hostage underground in The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks; Blood Family by Anne Fine begins with police rescuing a seven-year-old boy from his mother's abusive partner; and children are snatched and forced to become soldiers in The Child's Elephant by Rachel Campbell-Johnston. Strange isn't it?"
 So here's what made it on to the shortlist.


You can find our review for The Bunker Diary here. It's SO GOOD. 

Rooftoppers won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for 2014 so it will have a good chance again here, but it has such stiff competition. Anne Fine is a veteran YA author and Liar and Spy has had some fantastic reviews. Looking forward to seeing what happens!

The winner will be announced on Monday, 23rd June.
