Daykin’s rainforest tale picked up by Faber

Faber Children’s will publish Chloe Daykin’s third novel this July, after buying world rights from Catherine Clarke at Felicity Bryan Associates in a two-book deal.

Fire Girl, Forest Boy, set in the Peruvian rainforest, is the story of two children: one is running away, and the other is running home.

Editor Stella Paskins said: "The characters are on a physical journey and also a journey of the soul, as modern-world corruption collides with ancient beliefs."
