The Scottish Teenage Book Prize is a new award from the Scottish Book Trust. The award celebrates the best of fantastic Scottish teen fiction. There is still time to register, so be sure to log onto the book trust website and cast your vote. You have until 17th February to vote for your favourite book. The 3 shortlisted books are available from CALL Scotland as reader-enabled PDF's.
CALL Scotland has produced accessible versions of the 3 shortlisted books, available from our Books for All website. The books are available free of charge. Readers and schools can download accessible digital copies of the book(s) they wish to read.
The books can be read out by the computer using 'Heather' or 'Stuart', the high quality Scottish computer voices that are available free for schools and pupils from CALL Scotland's The Scottish Voice Website.
Please note that you can get eBook and audio versions of some of the books commercially to read on a Kindle or iPad, for example, and so if you can access these books, you should buy one rather than requesting a free eBook from us.
We’re looking forward to hearing who the winner will be when it is announced on 1st March 2017.
