Hot Key Books has acquired a three-part teen series by Jess Vallance.
Publishing director Emma Matthewson, who bought world rights to the Gracie Dart series from Jo Williamson at Antony Harwood, said: “With Gracie, Jess has created the perfect best friend who makes all the mistakes, so you don’t have to.”
Gracie Dart: You Only Live Once will publish in April 2018, with the sequel due in August and the third slated for 2019.
