Oxford University Press has acquired a "fast-paced and gripping" teenage novel by Ann Kelley.
Koh Tabu tells the story of nine girls embarking on an adventure on a tropical island. However, the island changes from paradise to hell overnight and the girls have to fight for survival. The book will be published by OUP in April 2010.
[Ann Kelley] won the Costa Children's Book of the Year for Bower Bird in 2007.
