Selection criteria

Selection criteria for the Catalyst Teenage Book Awards:

  • The book must have been published between 1st October – 30th September  of the year prior to the award

  • It must be suitable for people between 14 – 16 (roughly S3-S4), although other people can love it too.

  • It can’t be a reprint or a sequel

  • The author must live in Britain or Ireland

  • It should be published as a paperback or e-book.

  • Most importantly, it must be a fabulous, can’t-put-it-down, I-need-to-know-what-happens-next-or-I’ll-explode kind of book.

We’re always on the lookout for recommendations for the next award. If you know any books that you think match all of these requirements, we’d love to know about them.
