Kate and Rob are back to discuss the first week of the Essex Book Festival, and their thoughts on The Girl In The Red Coat by Kate Hamer and Thirst by Kerry Hudson.
First up, it’s topical news. We cover World Book Day, a poll conducted by BT TV on the top fifty book-to-film adaptations, and the recent UKYA Blogger Awards. Listen to the YA Edition podcast next week to hear more about UKYABA from its founder, Andy Robb.

Kate chaired an event with Kate Hamer on 2nd March, and reviews her debut novel, The Girl In The Red Coat published by Faber.
