NETBA 2017 – Welcome!

NETBA is back for another year and it’s bigger and better than ever before!

We might be biased but we think that this year’s shortlist highlights some brilliant YA titles from both established and up and coming writers.  We pride ourselves on talent spotting in the NE and try hard to uncover new authors and powerful, life-changing stories.   This year’s line-up is, quite simply, the best of the best published in paperback over the last year and contains something for everyone.

Schools from all over the North East are currently reading and heatedly discussing the shortlisted NETBA titles and will cast their votes for the winner at the start of February.

The winner will be kept top secret until our NETBA party on Monday 26th February. We’re thrilled and hugely grateful that all of our shortlisted authors will be coming along this year to meet our student judges.

Keep checking back on this page for the latest news and reviews – and that all important winner!
