Dept 51 @ Eason Teen & Young Adult Book of the Year

The rationale behind the Teen & Young Adult category was to further sub-divide the children’s categories in a way that made more sense in terms of target audience and we hope that the three-category format will address the issue.  This category is aimed at readers aged 12 years and over. Dept 51 @ Eason are the first sponsors of this category which is currently one of the hottest trends in publishing.
