Category: Reading

In September 2016, we launched the inaugural Scottish Teenage Book Prize, and we can’t wait to announce the winning book on 1 March, as voted for by pupils in schools and libraries throughout Scotland!

To ramp up the excitement, we’re giving away a set of the shortlisted books to one lucky winner before the announcement. Here’s what you can win: 

Black Cairn Point Jacket

Black Cairn Point by Claire McFall 

This thrilling horror story follows Heather and her friends on a camping trip to a deserted beach in Dumfries & Galloway, where things quickly go awry. It’s packed full of twists and turns and will keep you guessing until the last page!

Silver Skin Jacket

Silver Skin by Joan Lennon

In this sci-fi historical story, Rab from the far future is thrown back in time to pre-historic Orkney in a terrible accident. The villagers he meets believe the world is ending, but mistake Rab for a mythical selkie bringing good luck, so how will they ever let him go home? You’ll be transported to Stone-age Skara Brae in this gripping time-travel novel.

The Last Soldier Jacket

The Last Soldier by Keith Gray 

In the Deep South in the 1920s, brothers Joe and Wade are waiting for their dad to return from the war when the carnival arrives. It’s usually full of gimmicks, but the new exhibit, The Last Soldier of World War One, seems different. Lines between reality and nightmare are blurred in this tense and thrilling read.
