On the completion and winner:

Fynn:
I thought One shouldn’t have won the award, there was no emotional connection between I and Tippi. I thought Lies we tell ourselves should have won.

Herbie:
I think that One was a good book but it shouldn’t have won Carnegie’s medal, the writing was odd and the emotions weren’t displayed well enough.

Tom:
My view has changed, and I think that I can understand with the judges (albeit grudgingly). I thought that Sarah Crossan’s speech was really good, and can actually see her personality throughout the book now that I look back on it. I don’t actually agree with the choice, but I can see why the judges picked it.

Mr. Crow:
I’m not as dismissive as my shadowing group but I don’t think it was the strongest book on the shortlist. Happy about the pro poetry message it sends though.
