Melvin Burgess won the 1997 Carnegie Medal for his novel "Junk".

An exciting tale, narrated from two very different perspectives, about two boys' efforts to become highwaymen to fool their school teacher.

Further danger lies in store when they realize that they've strayed on to another robber's patch...By turns funny and thrilling - with an brilliant twist in the tale - this has all the hallmarks of a classic Melvin Burgess story.

In addition, it's a story that explores a fast-changing period of history, and brings it vividly to life.

As Melvin Burgess notes, 'Tensions between Britain and Spain were high, political talk was all of spies and treachery and war.

Religion was a big issue - you could be imprisoned or worse for following the wrong faith.'
