The winner of the Older Year Category went to 'Wildlife' by Fiona Wood.
The judges for the CBCA Book Awards are adults, usually in the field of education or publishing and while their decisions are valid, sometimes another perspective is warranted.
There is an award where the judges are teenagers from across Australia. The Inky Awards from the State Library of Victoria's website 'Inside a Dog' offer you a chance to participate and have your say in what were the best books for 2013/2014. The short list is quite extensive and you do not have to have read all the books. Just vote for your favourite book so far. The Inky Awards voting can be found here.
Have your say today.
