But I remember the nervousness when the teacher read out the winners. My hands were clammy, my crossed-legs were shaking. And then my name. I had to stand up in front of the whole school so people would know the person who won. Afterwards, the winners (from each of the four years at the school) were allowed to pick a book out of the cupboard. As my teacher didn't allow me to go until break time, I ended up with the last book.
I enjoyed the book - I vaguely remember there being a plot line that resembles the Noah parable.
The book seems to be a mystery though. The title isn't listed on the author's wikipedia page.
