HarperCollins Children’s signs new Sarah Dessen

HarperCollins Children’s Books will next year publish a new YA novel by US author Sarah Dessen.

The Rest of the Story is about a girl who reconnects with a part of her family she hasn’t seen since she was small.

Publisher Rachel Denwood will publish the novel in print, ebook, and audio in the UK on 4th June simultaneously with Alessandra Balzer, v.p. and publisher at Harper imprint Balzer + Bray. Suzanne Murphy, president and publisher of HarperCollins Books in the US, signed world rights from Leigh Feldman of Leigh Feldman Literary.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to publish the great Sarah Dessen in the UK,” said Denwood. “The Rest of the Story is a heart-stopping tour de force from a writer at the height of her powers.”
