from The Bookseller:
Zoella has re-launched her book club with W H Smith, this time enlisting the help of fellow authors to select the titles.
Writers Juno Dawson, Jennifer Niven, Amy Alward and Chris Russell will now be part of the newly-formed “Zoella & Friends” Book Club, with the first set of titles released today (29th June).
Of the eight chosen books, Zoella herself has selected just one – Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu (Hodder Children’s Books), about a schoolgirl who starts a “girl revolution”.
Niven has also selected one book, Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt (Andersen Press), a “heartbreaking” story, narrated by 12-year-old Jack, whose family is caring for 14-year-old Joseph.
The other three authors assisting Zoella in the book club have chosen two titles each, with Dawson picking Girlhood by Cat Clarke (Quercus Children’s Books) and History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera (Simon & Schuster’s Children’s), Russell selecting After the Fire by Will Hill (Usborne) and Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer (Bloomsbury). The last two titles have been recommended by Alward, whose title The Potion Diaries (S&S Children’s) was chosen for Zoella’s first book club. She has picked The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr (Penguin) and The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord.
Both Lord’s title, published by Bloomsbury, and Mathieu’s, published by Hodder, will be exclusively sold through W H Smith from today (29th June) until 21st September in the case of Mathieu’s title and until 10th August for Lord’s.
Meanwhile all eight titles will have exclusive jackets for W H Smith.
