We’re thrilled to be sharing the news that C.L. Taylor‘s YA novel, The Island, has won the Portsmouth Book Award for Longer Novels. This award was hosted by the Portsmouth School Library Service, which is dedicated to providing library services for schools and inspiring pupils to read more.

Lost meets The Hunger Games, The Island is a chilling page-turner about a group of teenagers who find themselves abandoned on a sinister island with a mysterious stranger playing upon their darkest fears. The Portsmouth Book Award is judged by local students, and we couldn’t be happier to see that student readers are loving The Island as much as we do!
