Electric Monkey To Publish David Levithan's Every Day
Posted at 11:06AM Tuesday 20 Nov 2012
Electric Monkey will publish David Levithan's YA novel EVERY DAY in July 2013. Publisher Stella Paskins bought two David Levithan books from William Morris Endeavour with UK and Commonwealth rights, excluding Australia and New Zealand.
Stella Paskins said: "I've long been a fan of David Levithan and I think EVERY DAY is the novel that will really grab a UK audience. It's a work of vibrance, passion and imagination, which is what I'd expect. But the fact that it's also a story that makes you excruciatingly aware of your life, your motives, your feelings, your purpose – THAT'S what's taken it to another level."
EVERY DAY published in the US in September reaching the New York Times bestsellers list. It tells the story of A, who wakes up in the body of a different person every day. It's all fine until A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin's girlfriend Rhiannon, someone he finally wants to be with day after day.
David Levithan said: "Every Day has had such an amazing impact here in the US, and I'm so excited to have Electric Monkey bringing it to life for UK audiences."
David will be touring the UK in the Autumn 2013.
