Queen of Teen, Juno Dawson, is penning a YA historical romance and we could not be more stoked for it.


What do we know? It’ll be partly set in the 1940s. It’s about two teenage girls over the course of 50 years. It’s called ‘Margot & Me’. And it’s coming to a bookshop near you in early 2017.

Finally, ‘The Lie Tree’ author, Frances Hardinge has had one of her other books optioned for TV and film. ‘Cuckoo Song’ will be adapted by Catalyst Global Media. Let’s keep the popcorn on standby!
