Firefly buys ‘up lit’ YA by Kate Mallinder

Welsh independent Firefly Press has bought the UK and Commonwealth rights to Summer of No Regrets, an ‘up lit’ YA novel by debut author Kate Mallinder.

The novel, which will be released in May 2019, is about Cam, Hetal, Nell and Sasha who decide to have a summer of #NoRegrets after Hetal’s gran talks about regretting not seeing her now terminally ill friend for 50 years.

Editor Rebecca Lloyd said: “Summer of No Regrets is a perfect, heart warming read for teenage girls, with a mix of humour, sensitivity and real-life issues. Its socially and ethnically diverse group of girls have wonderfully authentic and supportive relationships – it is a life-enhancing celebration of friendship.”

Firefly struck the deal with Hannah Sheppard from the DHH Literary Agency.
