Win the Young Adult Fiction Award finalists from the NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults

Updated: Jun 24



We have a pack to give away containing the five finalists vying for the Young Adult Fiction Award at the 2021 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.


These Awards are the preeminent celebration of publishing for young people in Aotearoa. As well as acknowledging the best and brightest in books for children and teens, a core aspect of the Awards’ mission is to foster literacy and a love of reading amongst New Zealand’s children and teenagers.


The judges said these books speak to the power of young people to profoundly influence the world around them, and don’t shy away from topics such as environmental destruction, oppression and injustice.

Young Adult Fiction Award Finalists Draw Me a Hero, N K Ashworth (Lasavia Publishing) Fire's Caress, Lani Wendt Young, (OneTree House) Katipo Joe: Spycraft, Brian Falkner (Scholastic New Zealand) The King's Nightingale, Sherryl Jordan (Scholastic New Zealand) The Pōrangi Boy, Shilo Kino (Huia Publishers)


Competition is now closed. Congratulations to Christine Braybrook for winning this prize pack.
