Helen Rutter’s Neun Wünsche für Archie (The Boy Whose Wishes Came True) has taken the world by storm and was shortlisted for the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis, the most prestigious award for children’s and young adult’s literature in Germany.

The shortlist was revealed at the Leipzig Book Fair and the winner will be announced on 20th October during the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Neun Wünsche für Archie was published by Atrium in hardback in August 2022 and a new special edition with a ‘Nomination’ sticker will be released this month.

Congratulations to Helen (and Archie!) – we couldn’t be more excited for this nomination!
