Young Quills reviews 2023

The Young Quills Awards for best historical fiction for young people

Published: 4th May 2023

The Young Quills books for each year must be published for the first time in English in the year preceding the competition – so 2022 for this year’s selection. Divided by age suitability the books are given to schools on the condition that the children and young people there write a review of the book following our criteria. Those reviews are used as the basis for us to create the shortlist from which the winners are selected – see this year's shortlist.

You can read some of the children and young people's reviews of all this year's books via the links below:
