2019 Locus Award Winner: Justina Ireland!



JABberwocky is thrilled to announce that Justina Ireland’s DREAD NATION won the 2019 Locus Award in the Young Adult Novel category! Justina is a new client and we couldn’t be happier about this celebratory start.

Justina’s New York Times bestselling title is a powerful, compelling tale of a young girl’s journey through a hostile world. DREAD NATION was published from Balzer + Bray in April 2018 and JABberwocky is incredibly excited to see this book getting the attention it deserves.

At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, DREAD NATION is Justina Ireland’s stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiar—a country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet.

Justina is working on a followup to DREAD NATION under contract with Balzer + Bray.

Congratulations to Justina Ireland and a big shoutout to all of JABberwocky’s 2019 Locus Award Finalists! We’re so proud to be working with such amazing authors.
