The British Book Awards (Nibbies) 2017 Shortlist - Debut author award

The Bookseller acquired the rights to the British Book Awards, also known as the Nibbies, earlier in 2017, meaning this year there will be a unified book and trade award-giving for the first time since 2004. The shortlists contain six books in each of the six categories, and recognize the author, illustrator and entire publishing team.
