Night of the Party wins the Bristol Teen Book Award

An enormous thank you to the Bristol librarians and schools who put on such a wonderful event for the final of the Bristol Teen Book Award on Thursday 13 February (which, coincidentally, is the date of the critical election in Night of the Party!) It was great to meet so many enthusiastic and insightful readers (there were some brilliant suggestions in the workshop about how Ash and Zara’s story might have turned out differently, and some really really challenging questions about writing in the panel session).

It was a great shortlist. I had enjoyed and admired the other books a lot. So I DEFINITELY wasn’t expecting to win… But it was a delight to know that Ash and Zara’s story had resonated with, enthused, and engaged so many young readers.
