from The Bookseller:
Liz Kessler is gearing up for a stellar 2015, with Orion lining up her first YA novel and the sixth book in the popular Emily Windsnap series—for which a film deal is in the works.
The YA novel, Read Me Like a Book, is a coming-of-age and coming out novel about a 17-year-old girl called Ashleigh. Orion, which will publish the book under its Indigo imprint in May next year, said Read Me Like a Book marks Kessler out as a “brilliant new voice in UK YA literature celebrating diversity”.
Kessler began the book more than 10 years ago but was inspired to send it off for publication last year, saying the “timing was right”.
