Much-in-Little signs Kendra Leighton

Constable & Robinson YA imprint Much-in-Little has acquired a novel by debut author Kendra Leighton, inspired by Alfred Noyes' poem "The Highwayman".

Sarah Castleton bought UK rights in Glimpse by Leighton from Jane Finigan at Lutyens & Rubinstein.

Much-in-Little will publish in autumn 2014. The story follows the increasingly eerie life of Liz who, after a car-crash erases all memory of the first ten years of her life, moves with her father to The Highwayman Inn.

Castleton said: "Kendra's super-fresh interpretation of 'The Highwayman' is a pull-the-covers-tighter treat. A ghost story, a love story, and a story of overcoming trauma, Glimpse makes you shiver, even as it warms your heart."
