Firefly Press acquires YA thriller by Nicola Davies

We are super excited to announce that we have acquired UK and Commonwealth rights in Skull Gully, the first novel in an environmental thriller trilogy Speakers by Nicola Davies, from Veronique Baxter of David Higham.

Skull Gully is set in a world where Speakers, who can communicate with animals, were once revered but are now shunned and hunted by government forces. So when Harlon’s younger brother and sister, Ash and Xeno, began lining up robins and mice in the garden, their parents packed the whole family off to a place where no one would find them. But now they have…
 
Penny Thomas, Firefly Press Publisher, says: 'Nicola is a wonderful writer whose books for younger children are deservedly much loved. Skull Gully is a riveting rollercoaster ride for older readers through our perceptions of the natural world and what binds us to it. We are so delighted to be working with Nicola and publishing this terrific and important novel.'
 
Skull Gully is publishing in spring 2021.
