The gorgeous cover for Keren David’s ‘Cuckoo’ is here

The wonderful Keren David, author of the ‘When I Was Joe’ series and last year’s brilliant ‘This is Not a Love Story’, is back with another gritty UKYA contemporary novel. And we are dying to get our hands on it!

Here’s what ‘Cuckoo’ is all about:

Jake is an actor, a household name thanks to his role on the UK’s most popular soap. But his character went upstairs to his bedroom six months ago and never came down again, and now Jake is facing an uncertain future. Add to that his dad’s anger issues, the family’s precarious finances and the demands of a severely autistic brother; Jake’s home feels like a powder keg waiting to explode. It’s easier to spend nights on friends’ sofas and futons, but what happens when you feel like a cuckoo in every nest?

So are you are primed and ready? Here’s the cover!


‘Cuckoo’ will be released on 4th August by Atom.
