Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher’s first book, Stolen, won the 2010 Branford Boase Award. Judges said that her book was a ‘sensitive, compelling and intense novel with a great sense of place’. Lucy’s second novel, Flyaway, about a girl and her relationship with her bird-mad father, has been shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the Waterstone’s Prize, as well as being longlisted for the Carnegie Medal.
