THE HEIR wins Children’s Choice Book Award


Keira Cass’ The Heir won teen book of the year at the Children’s Choice Book Awards on May 4th. The event, hosted by Jon Sciesza, focused on the best of children’s and YA books at the upcoming year.

The Heir is the fourth novel in Keira Cass’ beloved The Selection series. Princess Eadlyn is hosting a Selection of her own, and she doesn’t expect the fairy-tale ending her parents had – but one entry may capture Eadlyn’s heart after all.

Jennifer Mathieu also won the Teen Choice Debut Author award for her novel The Truth About Alice. In The Truth About Alice, Alice Franklin is labeled a slut – and when the school’s star quarterback dies in a car accident, the rumors about her begin to spiral out of control. Four Healy High students know their own side of the stories, but only Alice knows the truth herself.

  1. How can a book win an award after only being out for less than a week? It’s not even getting the best reviews. Not that it’s a bad book. I just think there are better candidates that have been out for a more reasonable amount of time to be considered.
