Simon and Schuster Children’s UK will this autumn co-publish the sixth novel by Becca Fitzpatrick with S&S US.
Dangerous Lies is about a teenage girl called Stella Gordon who becomes a key witness in a murder trial and has to go into witness protection. She struggles to keep her identity secret while she finds herself drawn to a new love interest.
Fitzpatrick is the author of several YA novels, including the Hush, Hush series, and her books have sold more than 300,000 copies in the UK, according to Nielsen BookScan.
Jane Griffiths, commissioning editor for S&S, said: “Becca Fitzpatrick has absolutely proved herself to be the queen of YA smoulder and Dangerous Lies is another page-turning, heat-filled novel that fans are going to fall head-over-heels for.”
S&S UK and S&S US will publish Dangerous Lies on the 10th November.
