Have Your Say …

"The ABAs are always an amazing selection of inspiring books. And organised by lovely ladies who all do such a wonderful job. We are eagerly awaiting the shortlist here at Davison School, with many girls already asking when it starts."
Mrs A. Warwick, Davison CoE High School for Girls

"The Amazing Book Awards has been a real Godsend. It just seems to keep getting better every year. The question on everybody’s lips in the first book club of term this year was “When does the ABA start again?”. It is well worth the subscription fee. I can’t thank the organising team enough, really!" --- Mrs Sykes-Little, Librarian, The Academy, Selsey

"The ABA shortlist challenges the students to try reading different genres and inspires discussion about the plots and characters which the students enjoy very much... Having the chance to meet the authors at the Awards night, hearing who has won and seeing the winners receive their prizes is a very special moment. Our students are looking forward to the new shortlist of books." Jane Fella, Librarian, The Weald School
