“I am thrilled to be crowned Queen of Teen UK. I look forward to bringing some American blood to your royal line.
It is true we rebelled against the very idea of a crown, but I am prepared to put that aside and rule with a fair and temperate hand, and not to fire a few triumphant rounds in the air during the ceremony.
And as my first official words as Queen, I would like to say, YEEEEEHAAAAW!“
Maureen Johnson, Queen of Teen 2012
“It was the coolest thing ever to be voted Queen of Teen in 2010. Seriously, it was a huge honour to be crowned and on the shortlist with such an amazing bunch of authors.“
Cathy Cassidy, Queen of Teen 2010
“The whole thing’s been gorgeous. I never win anything – I was never even a school prefect. Now I’ve got a crown and a throne – how could it be more perfect?“
Louise Rennison, Queen of Teen 2008
