Three of the very best writers for teenagers, Sarah Crossan, Sita Brahmachari and Holly Bourne join forces for a session guaranteed to entertain, to inspire, and to provoke debate and laughter.

The best young adult fiction captures your imagination and plays with your emotions like nothing you have read before. And we have assembled three of the very best writers who brilliantly describe that heady, thrilling stage in life when you are just working out who you are and what you want.

Crossan writes beautifully crafted novels about families, first love and the healing power of words. The Weight of Water and Apple and Rain were both shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, and her latest book One is already being described as one of the books of the year.

Sita Brahmachari won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize with her debut novel Artichoke Hearts and writes topical and moving novels about family, love, community, the tangled roots of history and searching for a place to call home.

Holly Bourne is a journalist and editor for TheSite.org, an advice and information website for young people. Her books include The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting and Am I Normal Yet, compassionate, sensitive and funny examinations of the good and bad of being a teenager.

Discussions will be chaired by Anna James, a former journalist at The Bookseller and literary editor of Elle.
