Have your say

The winners of the Lincolnshire Young People’s Book Award were announced yesterday.

Wonder by RJ Palacio and Nevermore by James Patterson captured the imaginations of youngsters to win recognition as the best reads of 2013.

Lincolnshire County Council executive member for Children’s Services Patricia Bradwell (Con), said: “The awards are a great way to encouraging young people to take a pleasure in 
reading and help them develop debating skills, as well as an appreciation of stories.”

The book awards are run by the county council to encourage children and young people to read and use their local libraries.
