The Booktrust Best Awards chose John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars as their first ever award winner.
The Booktrust Awards was run with Amazon Kindle as a part of Children’s Book Week 2014. Judges voted on a shortlist of novels eligible in their various categories. Thousands of students then voted on their favorites in each category. Green took home the 12 – 14 age category for best story.
The shortlist included You Don’t Know Me by Sophia Bennett, Heroic by Phil Earle, and Dead Romantic by C J Skuse.
The Fault In Our Stars follows the friendship and romance of Hazel and Augustus, two teenagers with different forms of cancer.
