Last night, Jessica Schiefauer was awarded Stora Ljudbokspriset 2017 for her amazing YA novel Pojkarna. The jury’s motivation in the YA category was as follows:
“The winner of this year’s Stora Ljudbokspris in the YA category goes to a book in which the author takes us listeners on a hike in a unique environment unlike any other. With a captivating language we’re taken into a world embedded in a dreamlike sheen with a dark undertone. The author has succeeded in writing a hybrid between fantasy and reality. There, the young characters goes against society’s conventions and allows listeners to reflect on stereotypical and gender-specific approaches.
The reading seems credible to us listeners, with an ear pleasing rhythm – perhaps because it is the author herself who is reading it to us.”
Stora Ljudbokspriset is arranged by Storytel and Synskadades Riksförbund.
