Hachette Children’s Group buys body positive title

Hachette Children’s Group (HCG) has acquired a non-fiction book for teenagers about body positivity.

Body Brilliant by Nicola Morgan addresses teenage worries about body image and gives practical and mindful solutions to help readers work through their concerns. It is a follow-up to Morgan’s Positively Teenage, published by HCG earlier this year.

Managing editor Victoria Brooker said: “I’m delighted that Nicola has agreed to do a follow-up to Positively Teenage; Nicola’s expertise in writing for and about this age group is well-known and well-respected. Body Brilliant will be a fantastic resource for both teens and their parents. Children are bombarded with information and images – through the media and their peers – about themselves, and it’s often very challenging to navigate.”

Brooker acquired world rights from Elizabeth Roy of the Elizabeth Roy Literary Agency and will publish in July on the Franklin Watts imprint.
