The Young Bond Dossier reports that Double Or Die, Charlie Higson’s third Young James Bond novel, has been nominated for the 2007 Southern Schools Book Award.
The aims of the award include alerting young people to ‘books well worth reading’ and creating a mechanism for lively book discussions.
Librarians, teachers and students select the short-list from the publisher’s nominations. The criteria for these nominations are that the books must have been published for the first time in paperback between 1 April and 31 March just prior to the award year by an author resident in the UK. Students begin reading, reviewing and debating in September with voting in December.
