Congratulations to Helena Duggan and A Place Called Perfect

A Place Called Perfect has been shortlisted for the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards, and we’re so thrilled that Helena Duggan has been recognised in this way for her fantastic writing and wonderful story.

Violet never wanted to move to Perfect. Who wants to live in a town where everyone has to wear glasses to stop them going blind? And who wants to be perfectly behaved all the time? Violet quickly discovers there’s something weird going on, and when she meets Boy she realizes that the mysterious Watchers are guarding a perfectly creepy secret!

Irish readers can cast their vote for any of the categories in theIrish Book Awards here.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner and ceremony in Dublin on Tuesday 28th November. We’re wishing everything goes, well, perfectly, for Helena and A Place Called Perfect!
