Booktrust Teenage Prize names 2010 judges

5th May 2010

The judging panel for the Booktrust Teenage Prize 2010, which recognises the best writing for young adults, has been unveiled.

Children's and young adult author Tony Bradman has been named as the chair of judges, while writer and reviewer Mary Hoffman and chartered librarian Barbara Band will sit on the panel.

Journalist and author Barbara Ellen and 2009 Booktrust Teenage Prize young judge Claudia Freemantle complete the panel for the GBP 2,500 award, which is now in its eighth year.

Bradman commented: 'I was delighted when Booktrust asked me to be chair of judges.

'[Teen writing is] a fascinating area of children's books, not least because it's usually assumed that getting teenagers to engage with books is a tough call.'

Last year, Neil Gaiman won the Booktrust Teenage Prize with The Graveyard Book, after judges unanimously voted in its favour and praised the author's 'gentle, fluid and humorous' writing style.

Other winners of the prize include Patrick Ness' The Knife of Never Letting Go, Henry Tumour by Anthony McGowan and Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
