Children's novelist wins Glen Dimplex - The Irish Times - Tue, Nov 11, 2008


Award Winner

FIRST-TIME writer Sally Nicholls, whose book, Ways to Live Forever, is about a young boy dying of leukaemia, was declared winner of the Glen Dimplex New Writers Awards 2008 at a gala dinner in Dublin last night. She was presented with €25,000 in prize money for the novel, which was published earlier this year by Scholastic Children's Books... Ways to Live Forever has already won the 2008 Waterstone's Children's Book Prize and is longlisted for the 2009 Manchester Book Award.


I read this in manuscript when it was submitted as an MA dissertation and it's a marvelous, moving read. I remember writing at the time that it deserved to win prizes and I'm delighted that it now has. Well done, Sally,

I have read the book and it is wonderful! I would suggest everyone purchasing the book and sharing it with their friends and family. Thank you for listing it on your website. A must read!

A fun website that has free information on children and family topics. See their blogs and articles. It also has educational books for children. aaronsonlineboutique
