Barrington Stoke, ‘the home of super-readable book’ for young people, has announced they will be publishing a novella by much-loved YA author Non Pratt. The cover has also been revealed, and we *heart* it very much.
Her books, ‘Trouble’ and ‘Remix’, are popular with the YA crowd and there will be many clamouring to get their hands on this offering too.
Here’s the blurb: “Unboxed is about four teenagers who come together after several months apart. In previous years, they had put together a time capsule about their best summer with a friend who was dying. Now that their friend has passed, they reunite to open the box.”
So, what kind of feels-factor should we expect?
Well, quoted from the official publisher’s press release, ‘Unboxed’ “features a brilliantly diverse cast of characters who will face heartbreak and home truths as they return to their old school and discover that no one can ever truly go back.”
Oh lawd. It’s going to be emosh. But we’re totally ready for it. ‘Unboxed’ will be released in August of this year.
