18/06/2020And the winner of the Cilip Carnegie Medal is..... Lark by Anthony McGowan. A fantastic book and a very worthy winner!
If you haven't read it and need convincing that it should be your next literary pick, then here is Mrs Ewing's review of the winning entry.....
This is the final story in this brilliant series about brothers Nicky and Kenny. This time they are waiting for a visit from their estranged mother and so to escape the tension their dad suggests they go and explore the moors like he did when he was a kid. At first it is a fun adventure, they pack a picnic then have to take three buses to get to the trail but after they set off the weather changes and they find themselves lost and caught in a blizzard. The relationship between Nicky and Kenny feels very authentic with its mixture of bickering and
banter, Kenny also has special needs so Nicky feels an extra responsibility when things start to go wrong. This was a very tense read as you really begin to wonder how the boys are going to get out of their predicament, I was gripped and read it in one go. It is published by Barrington Stoke so is dyslexia friendly and is a quick read for readers 13+.
