Bloomsbury is thrilled to announce the acquisition of young teen debut EDEN, by Helen Douglas. Senior Commissioning Editor Ele Fountain acquired World English rights in two books.
Fountain says: 'EDEN combines a pitch-perfect voice and vivid characters for some sublime romantic angst, as girl meets boy in a starry twist of fate. Love triangles, suspense and stargazing unite for a heart-stopping twist. We're very excited to be publishing simultaneously with the US. Helen is an author with huge potential on both sides of the Atlantic.'
EDEN is a teen love story that spans the universe. When a plan to save the human race brings visitors from the future a young girl called Eden becomes the key to their success. With one action she can save the human race but along the way Eden will have to ask herself whether love and friendship is more important than saving the world.
EDEN by Helen Douglas will publish simultaneously in both the UK and US in early 2013.
