Davitt Awards 2009 - YA shortlist

The longlists for the Australian Sisters in Crime’s 9th Davitt Awards (criteria: crime/mystery fiction by an Australian woman) have been announced. The list for the Young Adult category is:

Catherine Jinks - Genius Squad (out in the US Apr 2009)
Maureen McCarthy - Somebody’s Crying
Sophie Masson - The Case of the Diamond Shadow
Isabelle Merlin - Three Wishes (out in the US Nov 2009)
Beth Montgomery - Murderer’s Thumb
Felicity Pulman - Willows for Weeping
Moya Symons - The Walk Right In Detective Agency: Open for Business
Moya Symons - The Walk Right In Detective Agency: High Crime in Milk

Unfortunately only a couple of them are listed on at a reasonable price. I have used the Australian Online Bookshop in the past to buy Australian crime novels.

Update: the winner, announced 21st August 2009 was Genius Squad by Catherine Jinks.
