Rock the Boat Shortlisted for Imprint of the Year

17th March, 2023

Rock the Boat has been shortlisted for Imprint of the Year at the 2023 British Book Awards. It is the second year in a row we’ve made the shortlist!

The judges said ‘Oneworld’s kids’ imprint Rock the Boat punched way above its weight in 2022, doubling sales year on year. Much of that was down to TikTok sensation Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow, which topped 250,000 copies. Other hits came from Angeline Boulley and Xiran Jay Zhao.’

Our Editorial Director, Shadi Doostdar, was also shortlisted for Editor of the Year. You can read more about this award here. 

At the British Book Awards, our parent publisher, Oneworld Publications, was also shortlisted for Independent Publisher of the Year. Read more about this shortlisting here.
