Wellington writer Jack Lasenby has won the Young Adult category of the New Zealand Post Book Awards, announced last night.
Calling the Gods is a futuristicky, action-packed story of survival: “Banishment is the cruellest punishment, and Selene is being driven out unjustly by her own people. A story of violence, love and courage, of leadership and betrayal, a tale of a young woman’s heroic persistence against impossible odds.” (catalogue)

The Bridge by Jane Higgins received the Honour Award.
Congratulations to everyone!
