Thrilled to see LADY JANE by Lucy Worsley shortlisted for the Historical Association’s 2019 Young Quills prize for historical fiction!

“Subjects ranging from the discovery of dinosaur bones to Anglo-Saxons kings, Egyptian mysteries, life in the Soviet Union and Antarctic exploration have all been explored through the lives of characters living in the past. Those journeys of discovery have been reported to us via book reviews from children as young as 8 through to 16 years. Using those reviews with ratings and recommendations, the HA staff have created a shortlist for three age categories.

This is the only fiction competition for children’s books where it is the recommended audience who help to devise the shortlist” – Historical Association
