Very happy news that Cell 7 has been shortlisted for the inaugural CrimeFest Best YA Crime 2017 Award!!
CrimeFest is an international crime festival held in Bristol every year, which is ‘not only one of the biggest crime fiction events in Europe, but also one of the most popular dates in the international crime fiction calendar’. Being shortlisted for an award by these is a complete honour, and I am jumping up and down in excitement.
The other nominees are –
– Leigh Bardugo for Crooked Kingdom (Hachette Children’s Group)
– John Grisham for Theodore Boone: The Scandal (Hodder & Stoughton)
– Erin Lange for Rebel, Bully, Geek, Pariah (Faber & Faber)
– Patrice Lawrence for Orangeboy (Hachette Children’s Group)
– Simon Mason for Kid Got Shot (David Fickling Books)
– Simon Mayo for Blame (Penguin)
– Eliza Wass for In The Dark, In The Woods (Hachette Children’s Group)
Unfortunately, I can’t make it to the ceremony, but I’m really hoping someone there will let me know the winner.
Good luck to all!
