YA Book Prize 2021 Home
Welcome to the YA Book Prize 2021
The YA Book Prize is back! We'll be announcing the 2021 shortlist this spring.
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 every year to a novel that 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), Will Hill's After the Fire (2018) and Sara Barnard's Goodbye, Perfect (2019). The most recent YA Book Prize winner was Meat Market by Juno Dawson, a “gritty and compelling” exposé of the fashion industry.
