Waterstones Children’s book prize 2013

I just saw the video for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2013, and noticed two of my favorite books on the shortlist!

Ketchup Clouds

The overall winner for teen fiction was Ketchup Clouds, by Annabel Pitcher, and I’m not surprised by that at all. Ketchup Clouds was totally amazing! Click HERE for my review.

Also, Insignia made the shortlist, Wahey!
