Publishing Deal - Jenny Downham

Announced on Booktrade, details of Jenny Downham's next book, You Against Me:

David Fickling Books is delighted to announce the publication of a new novel from Jenny Downham, author of the international bestseller Before I Die.

You Against Me, an intense and uncompromising novel about loyalty and the choices that come with it, will be published on 2nd December 2010.

If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's accused of a terrible crime but says he didn't do it, you defend him, don't you?

When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her, his world begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the offence, her world begins to unravel.

When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide.

David Fickling comments: "Jenny Downham's second novel is amazing. Say no more. Read it now."

Jenny's agent, Catherine Clarke at Felicity Bryan Associates, comments: 'This is a love story, but it reads like a thriller. We know we are in the hands of one of our most brilliant writers.'


  1. Before I Die was excellent, this sounds really good too...Added right to wishlist. Thanks!

  2. I would be looking forward to reading this. IF I LIVED IN THE UK...because for the US, it isn't going to be released on December 2nd! Which causes me to become extremely angry and dissappointed...
