North East Teenage Book Awards 2014

  

Getting and keeping young people reading.

I was in high school when I first took part in the North East Teenage Book Awards and it was this that seriously ignited my love for reading. I honestly cannot thank my high-school librarian enough for encouraging me to pick up books of all sorts and to take part in these awards. Some of my favourite books of all time were discovered when I was reading the shortlist each year.

And this year it's another bumper crop of amazing UKYA. This awards really highlights the best of young adult fiction in the UK. So in the run up to the award ceremony, I'll be sharing my thoughts and feelings, picking a winner of my own, and giving you the chance to win the book of your choice from the shortlist.

The Shortlist

    

Allies & Assassins by Justin Somper

  1. I haven't read them yet but I loved James's previous book - I'm sure Say Her Name is just as good! Thanks so much for the giveaway! :)
