When we have deliberated over our five chosen titles we will assign each one a score out of 100 and submit our verdict to CBI. The scores submitted by all the shadowing groups across the country are tallied and the highest scoring book will receive the Children’s Choice Award. We’re looking forward to finding out who the winners are on May 22nd!
