The Boy in the Hoodie - recommended for Young Adult readers aged 13+
"My manuscript being recognised in a couple of awards prior to publication gave me the confidence to send my work to a publisher. Within weeks they had asked for the whole manuscript, and before I knew it I was signing my first publishing contract. I was at school, teaching, when the email came through with the offer and I went to the toilets and cried. It had been such a long journey. Long, but totally worth it."
- Catriona McKeown on receiving a
