Further to our blog entry in June 2011, BLB Solicitors are pleased to learn that Moira Young has won the prestigious Costa Children’s Book Award for her debut novel Blood Red Road. The judges said, “” It’s astonishing how, in her first novel, Moira Young has so successfully bound believable characters into a heart-stopping adventure. She kept us reading, and left us hungry for more. A really special book””.
Moira, who was born in Canada but who now lives in Bath, is now in the running for the overall Costa Book of the Year title. She has also been nominated for the 2012 CILIP Carnegie medal, which is awarded by children’s librarians for an outstanding book for children and young people.
