We're delighted to launch the Cheshire Schools' Book Award for 2017. Now in its 11th year, it is proving to be as popular as ever, with over 20 secondary schools across four authorities choosing to participate. We were delighted to welcome author Daniel Whelan, author of The Box of Demons, to the launch night. He kept lots of secondary school pupils entertained as he talked to them about the ideas behind his book and was more than happy to answer questions.
We also unveiled the much anticipated shortlist for this year. As always, there is something for everyone. The books included on the shortlist are:
Celia Ahern Daniel Whelan Jenny Valentine Kim Slater
Flawed The box of demons Fire colour one A seven letter word
Non Pratt Taran Matharu Sam Angus
Unboxed The novice The house on Hummingbird Island
