Richard Lea reports for the Guardian on the 2007 Booktrust teenage fiction award. Here is the shortlist:
- Here Lies Arthur, by Philip Reeve
- Just in Case, by Meg Rosoff (this is one that gets better with time, in my opinion)
- The Penalty, by Mal Peet
- The Medici Seal, by Theresa Breslin
- Leaving Poppy, by Kate Cann (have any of you read this one?)
- My Swordhand is Singing, by Marcus Sedgwick
Let the races begin!
