Lark shortlisted for CILIP Carnegie Medal 2020

19 March 2020

Lark by Anthony McGowan has been shortlisted for the prestigious CILIP Carnegie Medal 2020. It is published by Edinburgh-based Barrington Stoke.

Things are getting tense at home for Nicky and Kenny as they wait for a visit from their estranged mum. To escape, they go for a walk on the moors, taking their little Jack Russell terrier with  them. But what should have been a laugh, a lark, turns deadly when the weather changes and they are caught in a blizzard. Nothing will ever be quite the same again …

You can read the first chapter for free on Barrington Stoke's website.

The winners for both the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals 2020 will be announced on  Wednesday 17 June 2020.
