Rock the Boat acquires Mussi YA novel

Sarah Odedina, publisher of Oneworld’s children’s and YA imprint Rock the Boat, has bought Sarah Mussi’s next YA novel, Room Empty.

The story is about two young people who meet in rehab.

Odedina, who bought UK and Commonwealth rights from the Sophie Hicks Agency, said: “Sarah Mussi is planning to write a brave book about the lives of two young people who find strength and understanding in each other despite their own very real troubles. Room Empty will be a ground-breaking book by a writer of great skill who really cares about her characters. I can’t wait to publish it.”

Rock the Boat will publish in paperback and e-book in autumn 2016.
