Zac & Mia wins at the 2014 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards
    1. Betts has won the Ethel Turner Prize for Young People’s Literature at the 2014 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards for her YA novel Zac & Mia.

Zac & Mia, Betts' third novel for younger readers, won the Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing in 2012.

The judges of the Ethel Turner Prize said of Zac & Mia, ‘[it] is beautifully crafted and unselfconscious in style and language, and, without any hint of hyperbole, these characters become part of the reader’s experience and will live on in a reader’s memory. This is a novel that is completely accessible and appealing to its intended audience, the young adult reader. Zac and Mia is very well written, and will be very well read.’

Zac & Mia is available now in bookshops and online.
