Teen panel selects alternative Orange prize shortlist. None of their choices match the official shortlist, and they selected Bernardine Evaristo's "Blonde Roots" as the winner. Shame that there's no prize money in it.... I'd be pleased to be on either list (let's face it!) but knowing my own daughter's stringent standards for what she reads, I might even be prouder of being on the teen list!
The official £30,000 Orange prize winner will be announced this evening.
