The local author who is fast gaining UK-wide notice for her young adult novels was awarded the prize for the best teen book category as well as the overall title.

Annabel was involved in two events for this year's Huddersfield Literature Festival - a visit to Westbourne High School to give a talk to several hundred pupils and a creative writing class for 14-16 year olds.
