Frank Cottrell Boyce wins 2012 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize

Frank Cottrell Boyce is the winner of this year’s Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, with his book The Unforgotten Coat.

The novel is based on a real-life incident and tells the story of two Mongolian brothers trying to adapt to a new life in Liverpool, amidst the fear of deportation. However the book was not originally intended for commercial publication. 50,000 copies were given away for free in schools, hospitals and prisons, to support the work of the charity The Reader Organisation.

You can borrow The Unforgotten Coat and other books by Frank Cottrell Boyce from the library.
