Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 8+. This is a gripping horror story that interweaves themes of bullying and about fitting in.

STOP PRESS ! The votes are in....and Hackney pupils have declared The Uniform winner of the 2011 Hackney Short Novel Awards! Now in its second year, the Awards see pupils from secondary schools in Hackney read and review a shortlist of five novels and vote for a winner. The scheme is the result of a collaboration between The Learning Trust, the publishing house Barrington Stoke, local bookshop Victoria Park Books and the Ministry of Stories in Hoxton.

Author Tommy Donbavand said: “I'm thrilled that The Uniform was chosen as the winner of the Hackney Short Novel Award.  I'd always wanted to write a spooky story without any zombies, werewolves or other creepy characters - just real people in a terrifying situation - and The Uniform was that story.  To hear that people are enjoying reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it is simply wonderful!”
