Well, this is a fabulous day! I've spent the week meeting amazing booksellers and librarians and teachers from the United States, but while my back was turned, their UK colleagues added The Call to their shortlist for The Leeds Book Awards. I'm so happy, I might even abandon my authorial dignity to dance around in a public place (Venue TBD).

Also on the list, is my friend, Liz Flanagan, author of the wonderful Eden Summer, and the great Sarah Pinborough, who wrote one of my favourite reads of last year, The Death House.

Here's the full list for the 14-16 age category:
Eden Summer by Liz Flanagan
The Trap by Alan Gibbons
Orangeboy by Patrice Lawrence
The Call by some guy
13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough
Broken Sky by L.A. Weatherly

Enjoy! I need to add a few of these to my own reading list...
