YA Book Prize 2020

It is our great pleasure to confirm Meat Market by Juno Dawson as the winner of the YA Book Prize 2020.

Honest, timely and powerful, Meat Market is a surgically sharp investigation into the dark undercurrents of the fashion industry. Through her highly relatable protagonist, Dawson tells a difficult story, pertinent to our times, with real flair and depth.

 

‘This year's YA Book Prize shortlist was one of the strongest we've ever had and the judges had a real challenge on their hands to pick a winner. However, Juno Dawson's Meat Market truly deserves this year's top spot for the way it effortlessly transports readers into Jana's shoes and tackles such tough, timely subjects with nuance.’

Caroline Carpenter, the chair of the YA Book Prize
