For 2023, the shadow judges chose: Completely Normal (and Other Lies) by Biffy James for the Older Readers category and August & Jones by Pip Harry for the Younger Readers category as their Book of the Year winners. Both are available to borrow from the library today!

Jamie lives in Dalton's Bay with Aunty Dawn and Uncle Bobby. He spends his downtime hanging out with his mates, Dally and Lenny. Mark Cassidy and his white mates - the Footy Heads - take every opportunity they can to bully Jamie and his friends. On Lenny's last night in town before moving to Sydney, after another episode of racist harassment, Jamie, Dally and Lenny decide to retaliate by vandalising Mark Cassidy's car. And when they discover the keys are in the ignition... Dally changes the plan.
