The Wessex Amazing Book Award has been set up by a group of librarians working in Wessex schools. The motivation behind the award was to give pupils a voice in choosing the books they love for the award. Each participating school puts one title onto the longlist, which is then cut down to a shortlist of 5. The pupils then discuss the shortlist and select their winner at an event in the spring. The WABA 2024 Shortlist can be downloaded from the info & special offers page, and the winner was announced in Feb 2024: This Book Kills by Ravena Guron
