I am delighted that ‘I Have No Secrets’ has now been nominated for nine awards for 2018 – five shortlists (Leeds, Worcestershire, Wandsworth, Doncaster, Lewisham), three long lists – (ABA (Sussex), Redbridge and Lancashire) and the Carnegie Nomination!
The Reading Agency have announced their Top Ten Volunteer Reads for summer 2017 and I Have No Secrets is on the list! Here’s what they say:
These are the books we’ll be recommending to the young volunteers supporting the Summer Reading Challenge later this year. Look out for competitions, author interviews and hack ideas too!
The final selection has everything from compulsive thrillers and ancient Norse myths to poetry on the football pitch and out-of-this world romance… As Skipton Reading Hackers described it; “There’s a lot of queer, a lot of strong females and a lot of death… Brilliant!”
