Alcester Schools’ Book Award – 2016

Our annual event kicked off with great excitement in March with the first event held at Alcester Academy.

The participating Year 8 students all came together to discover which books had been chosen by the School Librarians and then had a chance to discuss, on first appearance, which books they thought had the best chance of winning based on their blurb and cover.

The list of books for 2016 were:

1              Nowhere                                              Jon Robinson

2              One Day in Oradour                         Helen Watts

3              Dark Lord                                            Jamie Thompson

4              Fly Away                                              Lucy Christopher

5              Terror Kid                                            Benjamin Zephaniah

Their position: based on the cover and blurb were as follows:

1st        Nowhere        (20) + Staff (5)

2nd      Terror Kid        (5)

3rd       Flyaway          (1) – yellow cover version

What followed was reading the novels for the pupils to decide their winners. What will be the final result?
