About Our Reviews

Our online review system allows you to read reviews we have received of books on the shortlists since 2009, and to write your own reviews of books on the current shortlists. All reviews are moderated by our editorial team before publication, and pupils' surnames are not published.

Since 2009 we have received over 15400 reviews!

How to Write or Read a Review

You can view or write a review of books on the current shortlist by choosing a book from the Shortlists page.

Reviewing for the 2019 Award opens on Monday 7th January 2019.
