Very happy news from HarperCollins Children’s as All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry has won the significant and prestigious 2014 Silver Inky award.
The Inky awards were founded in 2007 by the Australian Centre for Youth Literature (ACYL) with the aim of recognising excellence in YA fiction for both Australian and international titles. What makes these awards so special is that the awards are run by young people, with readers voting for the winning titles from shortlists that are selected by a panel of teenage judges.
Three of the judges were present, with the youngest in Year 6. The passion and enthusiasm these young people have for YA literature is inspiring, and Julie Berry acknowledged her admiration for the awards in her videoed acceptance speech.
