Carnegie Medal 2016 Winner

And the winner is
One by Sarah Crossan 
 Grace and Tippi are conjoined twins. And their lives are about to change. No longer able to afford homeschooling, they must venture into the world - a world of stares, sneers and cruelty. Will they find more than that at school? Can they find real friends? And what about love? But what neither Grace nor Tippi realises is that a heart-wrenching decision lies ahead. A decision that could tear them apart. One that will change their lives even more than they ever imagined.

Carnegie Book Award 2016

The CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals are the UK's oldest and most prestigious children's book awards. Often described by authors and illustrators as 'the one they want to win' - they are the gold standard in children's literature.
The CILIP Carnegie Medal is awarded by children's librarians for an outstanding book written in English for children and young people.
The award this year will be announced on Monday 20th June 2016 at a ceremony being held at the British Library.
The FLC has a copy of each of this years shortlisted books.  Why not borrow one and see what you think.
