A teenage student has made the final round of the People’s Book Prize 2014 with a tale she wrote aged just 11.

Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice, published by Percy Publishing, was written by Lilly Say, of Glebe Avenue in Woodford Green.

Miss Say, who attends Trinity Catholic High School in Woodford Green, was 11 when she wrote the book using the pseudonym Hilda Poppit.

It has now been chosen ahead of around 400 nominees to make the final 12.

The award ceremony will take place at the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers in central London tomorrow evening.
