What is Young Teen Fiction (YTF)?
Staffordshire's Young Teen Fiction Book Award is aimed at KS3 pupils, age 11-14, who live or go to school in Staffordshire, or who use Staffordshire Library Services. It is an opportunity for young people to read an assortment of fiction and nominate titles they have enjoyed.
Nominations and votes are only accepted from young people - this award belongs to them! Please encourage them to take part.
