Sarah Shaffi, Little Tiger Group’s editor-at-large, has acquired YA romance My So-Called Bollywood Life by US author Nisha Sharma.
The novel is about a girl called Winnie who returns from a summer at film camp to find that her boyfriend of three years is cheating on her. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted. But does falling for someone else mean giving up on the prediction a pandit made that she would find love before her 18th birthday, and her chance to live happily ever after?
Shaffi bought UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Canada, from Casper Dennis at Abner Stein, acting on behalf of Sharma’s principal agent Joy Tutela at David Black Literary.
“In My So-Called Bollywood Life, Nisha has written a warm, funny and touching story of a heroine that I think many girls and women will relate to,” said Shaffi. “I can’t wait to bring her novels to the UK."
Little Tiger will publish the book on its Stripes list in May 2019 and a second title in 2020.
