Hodder Children's Books are pleased to announce the acquisition of two teen titles from celebrity broadcast and print journalist Dawn Porter.
Based on Dawn Porter's own adolescence growing up on Guernsey, these are epic stories of an intense female friendship between two schoolgirls, at a crucial age; when platonic love can rival romantic love in the passion, jealousy, joy and betrayal it inspires and the lifelong bonds that are forged between girls.
Hodder Children's YA Publisher, Emily Thomas says: 'We are thrilled to be publishing what we know will be a thoroughly compelling and epic story highlighting the power of female friendship. Dawn is a fabulous role model for teenage girls; her exploration of important subjects such as body image and breast awareness, as well as her great work in raising money for connected charities, gives her a powerful and refreshing point of difference in the world of media celebrity publishing.'
