The Branford Boase Award is given annually to the author of an outstanding debut novel for children. Uniquely, it also honours the editor of the winning title, highlighting the importance of the editor in nurturing new talent. I was invited to review the 2016 shortlist and thoroughly enjoyed reading these fantastic debut novels! Thank you to the team at Branford Boase for inviting me to participate in this way. The winner was announced on Thursday 7th July at a ceremony in London.
