YA Book Prize 2021 Winner

It is our great pleasure to confirm Alice Oseman’s Loveless as the winner of this year’s YA Book Prize.

Once more capturing the teen voice with absolute credibility, Oseman’s thoughtful, compelling story of asexuality asks important questions about what love really means as well as introducing readers to a multi-layered and relatable main character.

 

‘I’m over the moon that Loveless has won the YA Book Prize this year. It has enabled so many aromantic/asexual readers to be seen within its pages… It’s a book that will certainly be cherished, and one that readers will read again and again.’

Layla Hudson, Judge
