After a fantastic debate with 23 other Lancashire schools at County Hall in Preston on 26th June, a secret vote was taken to decide the winner.
Abigail and Caitlyn from Year 9 put forward their views on who they thought should win, based on their own opinions and those of the rest of the Year 9 readers of the shortlist. The final five were selected and then the winner itself!!
We were all sworn to secrecy and invited to meet up again at UCLAN for a celebration event to meet the shortlisted authors and to officially announce the overall winner.
Mrs Davis and Mrs Gornall took twelve students to represent our school and the authors all spoke about their books and their experiences of how they became writers and where they found their inspiration for stories. We met the authors as they signed our books and we had a fabulous free lunch too!!
And the winner of Lancashire Book of the Year is........
