Since 2008, we have been dedicated to celebrating the authors from the world of teen fiction. The Queen of Teen award highlights the incredible authors who bring so much enjoyment to their readers, dealing with real-life, coming-of-age issues in a way that is honest, entertaining and fun!
Teen fiction has come a long way since this award began in 2008 but it still remains as important as ever to readers growing up and experiencing a whole new world of young adult books. We cannot wait to celebrate the ever-growing range of incredible fiction available to teens at this year’s Queen of Teen ceremony on 11 July 2014.
The 2012 competition marked one of our most successful years to date, with…
Thousands of enthusiastic nominations from avid young adult readers
An amazing shortlist showing the diverse appeal of teenage fiction – including our first nomination for a male author with James Dawson!
Tens of thousands of votes from teenagers worldwide
A stunning award ceremony set in a beautiful vintage marquee
One eventual winner who flew all the way from the United States to join us for the very special day: the Queen of Teen 2012 Maureen Johnson
Teen fiction encompasses just about every kind of book, which is why it is so important to recognise and honour the amazing authors writing for any and every kind of teen, no matter what their reading interests.
