A nice confidence-booster yesterday! I did a gig for ‘Youth Reviews the Shortlist’, a videoconference between a number of High Schools in Austalia. I did an author presentation, but the main purpose was for students to review and then vote on the Children’s Book Council of Australia Shortlist for the YA Best Book of the Year.
So the students reviewed and voted, then the Chair opened an envelope and read out the actual winner as announced that day. But the best bit for me was when the Chair took a ‘popular vote’ that included Worldshaker along with the shortlist (since the students had all read Worldshaker too). Yippee! Worldshaker was way ahead as first choice!
