Meet the author: Danielle Jawando - When Our Worlds Collided In-Person

Join us for this in person Meet the Author event with Danielle Jawando. Danielle will talk about her novel When Our Worlds Collided, winner of the YA book prize and the Jhalak Children's and YA prize 2023. 

A powerful coming-of-age story about chance encounters, injustice and how the choices that we make can completely change our future. The second YA novel from multi-award-winning Danielle Jawando, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas, Gayle Foreman, Jennifer Niven and Nikesh Shukla. 
When fourteen-year-old Shaq is stabbed outside of a busy shopping centre in Manchester, three teenagers from very different walks of life are unexpectedly brought together. What follows flips their worlds upside down and makes Chantelle, Jackson, and Marc question the deep-rooted prejudice and racism that exists within the police, the media, and the rest of society.
