Hampshire Book Award

Students from 40 Hampshire secondary schools have chosen THE SPOOK'S APPRENTICE by Joseph Delaney as their top paperback fiction title published in 2005. This is the first time this book has won a prize despite being on many short lists. Just shows that fantasy still strikes a cord with the young. The other short listed titles were MUDLARK by John Sedden; RUBY TANYA by Bob Swindells; BLOOD PRESSURE by Alan Gibbons and THE HEAVEN SHOP by Deborah Ellis.
