The YA Book Prize 2020

 

The YA Book Prize is back!

Find out more about the books and authors on the 2020 shortlist here and check out the schedule on the left to see how you get involved with celebrating this year's YA10 on social media. 

We know you love YA fiction so our aim is to showcase the best YA from the UK and Ireland, awarding the YA Book Prize annually to a novel our expert judges, including young people, think is something special. 

Previous winners include Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours (2015), Sarah Crossan's One (2016), Patrice Lawrence's Orangeboy (2017) and Will Hill's After the Fire (2018). Last year’s prize went to Sara Barnard for her novel about the impact of a teacher-student relationship, Goodbye, Perfect (published by Macmillan Children's Books).
