Whilst the CILIP website is still (as of Thursday morning 17/03) displaying last year’s Carnegie shortlist, the Bookseller reported on the 2016 shortlists two days ago:
[Patrick] Ness is shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie medal for his YA novel The Rest of Us Just Live Here (Walker Books) along with seven other authors, including The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge, the winner of the 2016 Costa Prize, and The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick (Indigo), which was shortlisted for the 2015 YA Book Prize.
The other YA books shortlisted for the Carnegie are One by Sarah Crossan (Bloomsbury Children’s Books), There Will be Lies by Nick Lake (Bloomsbury Children’s Books), Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley (MiraInk) and Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine (HarperCollins Children’s Books).
