The Readings Young Adult Book Prize shortlist 2020
Yesterday the shortlist for The Readings Young Adult Book Prize was announced. Now in its fourth year, this prize was created to recognise and celebrate new voices in Australian Young Adult literature, and considers the first and second books of YA authors across Australia.
The judges commented on what a strong year it was for Australian Young Adult Fiction. The shortlist shows a diverse range of fiction that I know many of you have read, including one of our Book Club reads!
Here is the shortlist:
Everywhere, Everything, Everyone by Katy Warner
Invisible Boys by Holden Sheppard
Ghost Bird by Lisa Fuller
The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim
Devil’s Ballast by Meg Caddy
Take The Shot by Susan White.
This is a fantastic reading list of new voices in Young Adult literature. What do you think?
