The verdict of the 2011 jury:
Despite many good reviews of The Bride's Farewell and The Death Defying Pepper Roux, these two novels received no votes at all when our class held their ballot on Monday morning, 20 June, to establish the favourite after seven weeks' work. Low-scoring books by Patrick Ness, Theresa Breslin and Jason Wallace were nonetheless greatly enjoyed: Prisoner of the Inquisition gained a couple of votes, while Monsters of Men and Out of Shadows almost tied for a very worthy second place. By a clear margin, however, this year's winner in the estimation of the Bristol Grammar School jury is ... White Crow! The jury warmed to its chilling Gothic mystique, and the twists and turns of its twin time-scheme: we look forward to further works from this author.
