Convince The Critics - Competition Winners

We are delighted to announce the winners of our Convince the Critics Library competition. There were three winners, who all received a book, a WHSmith voucher and a bar of chocolate. Their winning entries appear below:

First Prize
The Maze Runner by James Dashner

Written by Max M 7GK

A gripping adventure that tests the mind to its greatest limits.  The Maze Runner will keep you guessing right through the breath-taking chapters.  With imaginative locations, blood-curdling plot twists and award-worthy moments, this book will keep you mesmerised until the last page!

Second Prize
The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner
Written by Sophie G 8NE

I've recently read The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner and would like to recommend it to you.  The book is a young adult historical novel set during the French Revolution and tells the story of its victims.  It's an amazing book, especially if you love history.  The plot is very intriguing and keeps you interested right until the end.  It highlights the loves of the gypsy people and how they lived.  It shows how easily a country and its people can fall, how quickly people change.  Mos t importantly, it will question your judgement of others.  Why should we judge people we don't know?  That question is a key theme of the novel as well as 'looks can be deceiving'.  The story is one of a revolution but will you join?  

Third Prize
Urban Assassin by Jim Eldridge

Written by Matthew U 8ST

Urban Assassin is an exciting adventure following a mission that Delta Unit has been tasked with. The team consists of five elite black ops soldiers: Mitch, Two Moons, Gaz, Tug, Benny and Nelson. Their mission is to save the Prime Minister from an awaiting assassination.  Though it won't be easy as they are up against an ex-squad member.

It's a thrilling page turner with ups and downs for the team - if you read and enjoyed the Amouron series you will love this too.  This story also has an amazing twist.  It is a story for people who like action heroes and who don't see failure as an option.

I would recommend this book to action loving people as it is not too long, so it makes a good quick read but is long enough to make a brilliant story.

Thank you to all those who took part in the competition.  We had some excellent entries, a selection of which will appear on the book review section of the blog.  Those reviews we feature will receive a challenge post card - watch this space!
