Skulduggery in the North East

150 students aged 11-13 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 North East Book Award student judges.

The winner of this year's award was announced as Derek Landy for his book Skulduggery Pleasant at a party at Seven Stories in Newcastle on Thursday evening, attended by some of the 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.

The organisers expressed their gratitude to the publishers supporting the award: Scholastic, Macmillan, Bloomsbury, Random House, Harpercollins and to Mary Byrne.

More information about the award, the other shortlisted books and what the student judges really thought of them.
