Author of the Mates, Dates series, Cathy Hopkins, is to move to Simon & Schuster for a new four-book series described by the publisher as "teen fiction goes upmarket".
[The Million Dollar Mates series] is set in an apartment complex in Knightsbridge with A-list-only residents including actors, models and millionaires. Jess Hall's dad is the new general manager and moves Jess, her brother and cat into a staff apartment, where she soon realises fraternising with the stars isn't all its cracked up to be.
The series will launch in paperback in July 2010 with Barefoot Princess, with an "aggressive" marketing and publicity campaign including a partnership with a teen social networking website.
