This year is particularly exciting because, for the first time, there are two male authors in the shortlist: A Fault in Our Stars author John Green, and a second successive Queen of Teen nomination for Hollow Pike author James Dawson.
In previous years, it has been very gratifying for the shortlisted authors to see how much their books mean to their fans. Past winners include Louise Rennison (2008), Cathy Cassidy (2010) and reigning Queen Maureen Johnson (2012).
Voting for this year's award is now open, closing midnight 7 July 2014. The winner will be crowned at the Queen of Teen award ceremony, on 11 July 2014.
If you've got a favourite Queen of Teen or a favourite book by one of the shortlisted authors we'd love to hear all about it. Share your comments or reviews on Twitter and Facebook.
