Darryl Samaraweera's VICKY HAD ONE EYE OPEN has been shortlisted for this year’s World Book Day Spread the Word award.
Published by Burning House VICKY HAD ONE EYE OPEN is a brilliant evocation of London, a touching analysis of the ties that bind families, and an imaginative journey to a fantastical Sri Lanka.

To cast your vote please visit www.spread-the-word.org.uk. Votes cast here over the next month will decide one winning book, The Book to Talk About, to be announced on World Book Day 2009, Thursday 5th March.
