Carnegie Medal 2014

Absolutely astonished to have been nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2014 – what an amazing honour! Best of luck to all the other authors involved, and huge thanks to everyone who voted 🙂

The Carnegie Medal is a British literary award that annually recognizes one outstanding new book for children or young adults. (It is the equivalent to America’s Newbery Medal.) It is conferred upon the author by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. CILIP calls it “the UK’s oldest and most prestigious book award for children’s writing” and says that writers call it “the one they want to win” (quotation marks original)
