Firefly Press acquires YA novel Summer of no Regrets

We are delighted to announce that we have acquired UK & Commonwealth rights to Summer of no Regrets, a diverse, ‘up lit’ YA novel by debut author Kate Mallinder from Hannah Sheppard from DHH Literary Agency.

Summer of no Regrets is a feel-good contemporary novel about friendship which touches on the big issues faced daily by teenagers who are growing up and finding their own sense of independence. It will publish in paperback in May 2019.
 
After Hetal’s gran shares her life-long regret about not seeing her now terminally ill best friend for 50 years, friends Cam, Hetal, Nell and Sasha decide to have a summer of #NoRegrets. But living their summer regret-free isn’t as simple as it first seems and as their lives unravel it’s their friendship that gives them the strength to face up to the future.
 
Firefly Editor Rebecca Lloyd says: 'Summer of No Regrets is a perfect, heart warming read for teenage girls, with a mix of humour, sensitivity and real-life issues. Its socially and ethnically diverse group of girls have wonderfully authentic and supportive relationships – it is a life-enhancing celebration of friendship.’
 
Kate Mallinder says: ‘I’m thrilled that Summer of No Regrets is to be published by the award-winning team at Firefly. It is quite literally my daydream come true.’
 
Kate Mallinder lives with her husband, four children and a grumpy cat near Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire. She wrote Summer of No Regrets as part of her own ‘no regrets’ pledge, along with trying to surf, which didn’t go so well. If left to her own devices, she’d live on a window seat with a good book and a never-ending cup of tea. @KateMallinder
