Welcome to the YA Book Prize!
We know you love YA fiction, so our aim is to showcase the best YA, awarding the YA Book Prize to a piece of work our expert judges, including young people, think is something special.
The YA Book Prize is awarded annually to the best young adult book written by an author living in the UK or Ireland.
Previous winners of the prize are Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours (2015) and Sarah Crossan's One (2016).
