There are five categories - First Novel, Novel, Biography, Poetry and Children’s Book - with one of the five winners chosen as Book of the Year, announced at an awards ceremony in London every January.
The OVERALL Winner - The Lie Tree
What the judges said about The Lie Tree, '"I think this brilliantly articulates what is in a clever 14-year-old girl's mind, particularly one that has a deep interest in science," he said. "The Lie Tree is a fantastic story, great characterisation with great narrative tension and a fabulous ending."
