Gold Award well deserved for Australian teen novel

Gold Award well deserved for Australian teen novel

The Centre for Youth Literature at State Library Victoria today announced the winners of the 2018 Inky Awards, Australia’s national teen choice prize for young adult literature.

The 2018 Gold Inky was awarded to Paper Cranes Don’t Fly by Peter Vu. The Gold Inky is awarded each year to an Australian author and includes a cash prize of $2,000.

Peter Vu was only six years old when he was diagnosed with a brainstem glioma. It was after the life-changing experience of his last surgery in Year 10 that he was led to write Paper Cranes Don’t Fly
He is currently a student, living in Melbourne with his parents and three siblings, but has ambitions of one day becoming a full-time writer.

The Silver Inky is awarded each year to an international author, and this year’s winner is US-based Angie Thomas for her novel The Hate U Give.
