Unhooking the Moon...
Debut novelist Gregory Hughes has won the Booktrust Teenage Prize for his work 'Unhooking the Moon'. The story of two orphaned siblings, Hughes wrote the book over a period of eight months in Iceland, working for six or seven hours a day in a room that he could barely stretch his arms in. Hailed as 'astonishing' by the judges, Hughes literary career is sure to blossom in future years, helped, no doubt, by £2,500 cheque he has received for winning.
