During the summer the book world went a little dotty with excitement over Lucy Sutcliffe’s story of falling in love, coming out and finding herself all while documenting it on YouTube that she told in her debut, ‘Girl Hearts Girl’.
Just make it all even more excited, Lucy’s going on book tour! But why are we so excited?
Lucy is one of those people who has had the internet change her life for the better and we love the story she has to tell. It’s always nice to hear about people falling head over heels in love in real life.
This beautiful little book is about more than love, though. We can see ‘Girl Hearts Girl’ inspiring people to be brave enough to admit their sexuality to themselves and come out when they’re ready to. It’s inspirational and empowering.
We’re going to get to hear about all that on Lucy’s tour, but we also get some of UKYA’s finest hanging out too! Non Pratt, Lisa Williamson, Juno Dawson, Krystal Sutherland, Jim Dean and Katherine Webber will be talking with Lucy at her different events. Can’t say no to that, really.
Make sure you keep up with Lucy on Snapchat!
