The Readings judging panel said,
Our brief was to select six books from the debut and second-time Australian YA releases published in the past year. Each book had to fulfil a set of criteria: it needed to be great YA fiction; show diversity in style and subject matter; and be a story that young people would enjoy. We are absolutely thrilled with the final shortlist. Not only do we want you to take note of each of these amazing authors, but also know that there is a story here for every YA reader.
