We had our Shadow Judges meet and vote in the Younger readers category yesterday.
It was quite a difficult process reaching a decision, with 2 titles registering well above the others with readers and each having very passionate supporters for the win.
In the initial vote, all titles attracted at least one vote.
It came down to:
The Stolen Prince of Cloudburst is OUR WINNER!!
Readers commented on the rich array of characters and the many threads in the story all stitched together in an incredibly satisfying way at the end.
We are Wolves a very closely contested second.
Readers commented that, for a historical novel this one was very relatable with a narrative that was gripping and highly emotional.
