I’m thrilled that I Predict a Riot has been shortlisted for The Essex Book Awards 2015. The awards are open to all secondary schools in Essex, Southend and Thurrock. Pupils are invited to read six shortlisted books and judge which one they consider to be the best.
The really positive aspect of taking part in this reading challenge is that it’s young people’s votes that really count! There are some amazing blogs where readers are commenting on all the books. I’ve LOVED reading the ones about I Predict a Riot – yes, all the comments – the good, the bad and the ugly! Can’t wait to meet some of you to chat about your comments when I come to Essex next week!
You can find out more or comment on the books here:
I’m also very honoured to be shortlisted for the Wirral Book Awards.
11 schools across the Wirral are taking part in the Award and will attend an author event on Wednesday 18th March and a judging/voting event on Wednesday 24th June, 2015. The winner is voted for purely by participating pupils, not teaching or library staff.
So nice for a North West girl to be nominated for this award! Really hoping I can get a day off teaching to come to the author event and meet you all! Thanks for shortlisting me!
