A Place Called Perfect shortlisted for Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2018

Helena Duggan’s A Place Called Perfect has been shortlisted in the Young Fiction category for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2018.

Published last year, A Place Called Perfect tells the story of Violet, who hates living in Perfect. Why does everyone have to wear special glasses to stop them going blind? What are the strange noises in the night and why is Mum acting so weird? Then Dad disappears and Violet is determined to uncover the truth with the help of the mysterious Boy. But returning normality to Perfect is a battle they never imagined…

A Place Called Perfect was also included in Tom Fletcher’s inaugural W H Smith book club in September, and was shortlisted for the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards in November.
