Firekeeper’s Daughter Wins CrimeFest Award for Best Crime Novel for Young Adults

16th May, 2022

Firekeeper’s Daughter has won the CrimeFest Award for Best Crime Novel for Young Adults, honouring the best UK books in the crime writing genre.  

The award is given to the best crime novel for young adults (aged 12-16) first published in the United Kingdom in 2021.

The winner receives a commemorative Bristol Blue Glass award.

Adrian Muller, co-host of CrimeFest, said: “The crime genre has dominated the book charts and our TV screens, keeping many of us company, particularly in the past two challenging years. The genre never fails to offer escapism and entertainment, as well as often exploring big issues and emotions. As a genre that also often makes sense of a chaotic world, it’s helped many people and is something we need today more than ever. We’re proud to celebrate the best the genre offers.”
