North East Teenage Book Award goes Berserk

300 students aged 14-16 from schools across the North East of England read, reviewed and voted for their favourite book from a shortlist of 6 chosen by librarians and last year's NETBA student judges.

The winner of this year's award was announced as Ally Kennen for her book Berserk at a party at the Centre for Life in Newcastle on Friday evening, attended by all 6 shortlisted authors, the students, their librarians, teachers and parents.

As usual with this award it was the students not the authors winning the prizes, with every student earning book vouchers for a reading and reviewing job well done.

A big thank you goes from the organisers to the publishers; Scholastic, OUP, Faber, Hodder and Walker and to Borders for providing the bookshop.

For more information about the award, the other shortlisted books and what the student judges really thought of them see the NETBA website.
