This is the first year the student-selected book award has been held.

In the autumn term, Cambridgeshire students were asked to nominate their favourite books and a winner was selected from the choices.

This year the winner was ‘0ne’ by Sarah Crossan with second place going to ‘Ghosts of Shanghai’ by Julian Sedgwick.

Although Sarah Crossan could not attend the awards, she recorded a video message for the students and Julian Sedgwick gave a presentation about his book.
