Costa Children's Book Award 2010!

Massive congratulations go to debut author and web designer Jason Wallace for his exceptional novel 'Out of Shadows'. This is a thrilling teenage tale of bullying, race relations and the need to belong set in Zimbabwe. Dramatic, sometimes disturbing with excruciatingly drawn characters, 'Out of Shadows' is a unique and timely winner. The judging committee commented:
"For us, this extraordinary debut novel was a unanimous winner. This compelling portrayal of a nation in crisis gripped us from start to finish and has stayed with us since."
