Branford Boase Award

I have never heard of this award before.

Yay! The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth has wriggled its way onto the long-list for the 2014 Branford Boase Award.

This is an award given annually for an outstanding first novel to a first-time writer of a book for young people. It’s unusual in that it also marks the important contribution of the editor in identifying and nurturing new talent.

This means that my lovely editors at OUP, Liz Cross and Helen Bray, get a well-deserved mention. Liz has not one but two books on the list!

The 2014 long-list contains amazing writers and wonderful books – it is very good company to be in and I am so thrilled to have landed there. If you want to find some excellent and very varied reads for children and young people, do take a look at the long-list here.
