Students are already avidly reading this year’s shortlist. The winner will be announced in March at a presentation evening at Bexhill Academy.

A review of last year’s winner, Smart
"This is a good book! I liked it a lot. The author did a good job on the names and the plot.
It is sad that Kieran does not have a dad; his nan is in hospital; a man is found in a river and Tony keeps on hitting Kieran’s mum.
It’s funny when Karwanna hits Scarface on the head with a frying pan!
At the end Tony and his son Ryan go to prison. And Kieran gets to live with his mum and nan."
