Headline has acquired No Filter, the first book from vlogger Grace Victory, known for promoting body positivity as the internet’s "Big Sister".
The book, publishing in hardback on 27th July 2017, will share Victory's inspirational story and experience of problems facing young people today, exploring taboo topics such as domestic abuse and mental health. It will also feature "hilarious anecdotes and no-nonsense advice" with "everything you need to know about accepting yourself and fighting for what’s right, in style".
Sarah Emsley, Headline publishing director, said: "Grace Victory is an impressive and inspirational young woman and as soon as we met her we knew we would do whatever it took to convince her that Headline was her rightful publishing home. As a body positive campaigner and mental health advocate with a mixed-heritage, working-class background, she talks to areas of the market that other vloggers and TV stars simply can’t reach. We couldn’t be more excited to have her important book on the list."
Victory said: It's important for me to tell my story because I think so many women will be able to relate to things I've been through. It's time for me to be honest, raw and unfiltered."
