What A Neat Idea

Here in the United States, we wonder if teenagers will be able to read Octavian Nothing. In England, a "shadow panel" of teenagers read the Orange prize longlist and came up with its own short list and winner.

"The "shadow" panel of teenage judges was set up to help a younger audience engage with the prize."

A great idea--encouraging young people to get involved with contemporary adult literature.
