Sarah Govett's Thriller Shortlisted for Award

We Go On Forever, the latest novel by award-winning author Sarah Govett, Class of 1996, has been shortlisted for a prestigious student-led Trinity Schools Book Award 2023.

The theme for this year’s TBSA is Facing the Future.  The shortlist is selected by school librarians, and then students read the books and cast their votes in February to decide the winner. They chose her novel in the Year 7-9 category, because of its timely focus on AI and the ethical dilemmas that it poses for the future.

Sarah’s YA thriller is a heart-wrenching love story set in a dark dystopian world, with echoes of Never Let Me Go, by Ishiguro. It’s an exciting read with a shock ending. “I’m over the moon that We Go On Forever has been shortlisted for this prestigious award,” says Sarah. “I hope the student readers enjoy it.”

She adds: “It’s set in a world where antibiotics don’t work any more but rather than dying, the richest people can upload their thoughts and their consciousness into a new host body and achieve a form of immortality.”

Sarah, who is the author of the award-winning Territory trilogy, regularly visits schools and runs writing workshops for pupils. Earlier this year she spent the day on set of a sci-fi stalker film she has co-written, called T.I.M. being produced by Stigma Films, which is now in post-production. “I loved seeing it all come to life.  It’s an amazing cast and crew.  I couldn’t be happier.”
