Mrs Lees, Spalding High School
This is an emotionally challenging and contentious read, the subject matter being one that will raise concerns and debate over its suitability for inclusion in a children's book award. However, the traumatic, despicable and catastrophic abuse suffered by the protagonist is fundamental to the story and it could not be the book that it is without it. I found Beck to be ultimately a tale of survival, redemption and love that I would highly, but not lightly, recommend.
