2013 Inky Awards Announced in Melbourne Australia

We are pleased to announce the Inky Awards for best teen Australian and International Book in 2013. The Inky Awards is hosted each year by Inside A Dog which is the website dedicated to Children's and Youth Literature at the State Library of Victoria Australia.  As an Aussie Mundie Mom I love all the hard work the people at our Vic State Library do for Children's and Teen fiction.

The awards are voted on every year in Australia by Australian Teens aged 12-20 years. Books need to be available for Aussie Teens to buy in regular book shops and from Aussie online stores to be eligible for nomination
