Readers responses via shadowing

Each year, thousands of children and young people 'shadow' the award judges by reading the shortlisted books, writing reviews and debating which books they think should win. Visit the shadowing site to see their personal responses to the shortlisted and winning books and find out which titles were the shadowers' favourite books.
