Day 4: Warwickshire Secondary Book Awards Digital Awards Ceremony!

We are very pleased to be able to share two videos with you today!

The first is from William Sutcliffe, author of ‘The Gifted, the Talented and Me.’ This book tells the story of ‘average’ Sam, who moves to a new house and has to start a new school for the ‘Gifted and Talented’ in London.  There are some very funny and relatable characters in this book, and it is the perfect antidote if you need some laughs in these difficult times.

The second video is from Lisa Williamson. Her book, ‘Paper Avalanche’, was nominated for the CILIP 2020 Carnegie Medal Longlist. This book follows the story of Ro Snow, who has a rather sad and lonely existence as she is so scared of people finding out that her mother has difficulties with hoarding and functioning. However, Tanvi Shah returns to school and is determined to befriend Ro. This book shows how the power of kindness and friendship can help overcome fear and isolation.

If you are looking for more to read, please do get in touch with Warwick Books who may be able to help you. They are currently selling book bundles that may be of interest to you! You might also find the Warwickshire Public Libraries eBook catalogue very useful, particularly Borrowbox.

Don’t forget to find us on Twitter (@WarwickshireSLS) and share your comments about the books and Award. We love hearing from you!
