I am ridiculously excited! Went along to a photocall and Glow event today to launch the awards. I'm in the YA category with two other brill books: "The Seeing" by Diana Hendry and "The Book of Doom" by Barry Hutchison.
You can find out more about the awards and the books shortlisted in the different categories here:
School children all across Scotland read all three and vote for their favourite. Last year there were over 30,000 votes. Wow! Voting goes right up until February so hopefully I'll be able to get out and about and meet some of the readers and encourage them to VOTE FOR ME!
The winner will be announced at a big awards ceremony on the 5th March - the day before World Book Day.
Can't believe Ferryman was nominated. So chuffed :) A couple of years ago I actually did the SCBA with my class! We read all the books, voted, and went along to the ceremony. It was brill.
Okay... one more time. SQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
