Winner of the 2011 Sharp Writ Book Award in the Fiction Category
In The Silent and the Lost, we saw the caliber of book that judges are always hoping to see. It was a rare book, a powerful book, a very moving book. It makes you feel a full range of emotions. There even comes a point where it makes you so angry, you need to put it down.
It was certainly a challenging read, but its very much worth the effort - once you finish it, you feel like you have gained something. When you get that feeling, you know that you’ve just read a really good book.
