News just in... the Queen of Teen award has registered more votes than the Best of Booker poll!
Just to remind you, the authors running for the award are Meg Cabot, Cathy Cassidy, Lisa Clark, Grace Dent, Cathy Hopkins, Sarra Manning, Karen McCombie, Joanna Nadin, Louise Rennison, and Jacqueline Wilson. The organisers reveal that the competition is fierce, with no clear leader at this stage.
