It is such a pleasure to announce that one regular and one reserve History Girl have been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal for children's fiction.  Tanya Landman's Buffalo Soldier and Elizabeth Laird's The Fastest Boy in the World are both there. Many congratulations to them. Catherine Johnson's Sawbones was also on the longlist, which is also worth celebrating.
