I’m thrilled to announce that SMALL SPACES has been shortlisted for the Readings YA Book Prize for 2018! You can find out more about the prize on the Readings website here. It’s an absolute honour to be in the company of such fantastic #LoveOzYA books.
Nina Kenwood, Readings’ Marketing Manager and Chair of the Judging Panel, comments: ‘The stories in this year’s shortlist range from romantic comedy to post-apocalyptic plague, and inspire everything from creeping horror to sheer joy. The six books are of an exceptionally high standard, demonstrating the extraordinary depth of talent to be found amongst debut and early-career Australian YA authors.’
Of SMALL SPACES, Nina said:
Sarah Epstein is not afraid to take her readers to dark places and Small Spaces is a gripping mystery and a deliciously creepy page-turner. Like the best psychological thrillers, this novel will have you on the edge of your seat, and keep you guessing until the very end.
Nina’s comments about all of the shortlisted books can be found here.
The winner is announced in late July.

Congrats! I definitely have to check this one out, it’s not often that you find a YA psychological thriller.
Thank you so much! I agree, there are heaps of adult psych thrillers around but nowhere near as many YA. Hope you enjoy it if you decide to pick it up. 🙂
