Important Upcoming Dates

Friday 21st June 2024 - The ABA Awards Night

The 2018 Shortlist is here!

Thank you for your votes, it gives us great pleasure to announce such a brilliant and inspiring list.

The 2018 ABA Shortlist

Annnnnnd here it is. The 2018 ABA Shortlist. What a list! We think it’s A-MAZING!

We can’t believe it! Thank you so much for your votes. You have no idea how close it was this year. There was just one single point between some of the books!

Now it gives us great pleasure to announce that the wonderfully brilliant HOLLY BOURNE will be our host for this summers’ awards night, on FRIDAY 22nd JUNE. Last years’ GOLD award winner Holly is really looking forward to meeting all those of you who voted for AM I NORMAL YET? She’ll also be free to chat to students and sign copies of her books at the end of the night.

This year we are hoping to be joined by all five of our finalist authors for the presentation night. So all you have to do now is read the Shortlisted books and then vote for your favourite. (Voting deadline is Thursday 7th June) Nice and simple.


ABA Welcome Packs ™  will be in the post soon for all our Active Schools, and keep checking our social media for news about our very special VIP student competition we’re running for the second year. Three students will win themselves and a friend an invite to the pre-awards VIP reception, front row seats, queue-jump passes for the book signing AND a ABA Goodie Bag ™ FULL of amazing ABA merchandise.

We’re certain that 2018 is going to be another brilliant year, and it wouldn’t be possible without you and your lovely students, so thank you!
