And the winner was ...
The Hampshire Book Award 2021 final vote took place this month, a country-wide event organised by Hampshire School Library Service and run on MS Teams.
Twelve Year 7/8 students each read six books with the task of judging which was the best. After much debating, disagreements and deliberations they submitted their verdicts! It was fantastic to see their enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for literature.
Whilst the votes were being counted they took part in an online quiz competing against other Hampshire secondary schools. Finally, the winner of the Hampshire Book Award was announced: ‘The Invincible Summer of Juniper Jones’ by Daven McQueen.
