HOW TO VOTE:
Each school should spend some time discussing the Long List. If you have copies look at the book covers and read the blurbs. Then ask your students to pick the 5 books they would like to see on the shortlist. Finally all you need to do is send us your total votes for each book (not just your top five books).
Get your votes to Amanda (APhelan@worthinghigh.net) by Friday 27th Jan. We’ll be announcing the Shortlist on Wednesday 1st Feb.
