Costa Childrens Awards Shortlist 2015

Here's a quick post...the Costa Book Awards shortlist have been revealed. Of course, I am mainly concerned with what's happening in the childrens category, but the best of luck to all shortlisted authors and their wonderful books.
In the childrens category, there is a very fine selection of four books and authors, so of which we are seeing rather a lot of lately.
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge (Macmillan Childrens Books)
Sophie Someone by Hayley Long (Hot Key Books)
An Island of Our Own by Sally Nicholls (Scholastic)
Jessica's Ghost by Andrew Norriss (David Fickling Books)

The winner of the Costa Childrens Award is also in with a chance to win the overall Costa, which hasn't happened in a while (2001, when Philip Pullman won for The Amber Spyglass), so maybe it's about time.
Good luck to all the authors!
