The Orange Prize Youth Panel’s Verdict!

Following our judging meeting last week, the youth panel‘s decision was announced yesterday: our winner is Room by Emma Donoghue, although the real winner of the prize will be announced this evening.

To read more about the youth panel’s decision, visit the Orange Newsroom.

This is what I had to say about the novel and our decision as a panel:

“We all agreed Room stood out. For us, it was the most accessible and gripping, and a real page turner. It’s an horrific tale told with powerful innocence – we all felt it changes the way you view the world and makes you question your environment.”

To read my full review of Room, click here. I loved the novel, and it was clear from the start of the youth panel’s meeting that Room was the most popular.
