COMPELLING REAL-WORLD THRILLER FROM NEW YA PUBLISHER Friday 1 May 2015 PDF Print COMPELLING REAL-WORLD THRILLER FROM NEW YA PUBLISHER COMPELLING REAL-WORLD THRILLER FROM NEW YA PUBLISHER Twenty years after the conflict’s end, London author Jane Brittan, confronts the dark legacy of the Bosnian war with a gripping YA story. This June sees the launch of ‘The Edge of Me’: the first title from new YA and Crossover publisher, Blowfish Books. The book represents a radical departure from the fantasy-fiction that has dominated YA in recent years: it deals with identity, with family and with a generation’s worth of secrets and lies. The Edge of me flips the classic YA coming-of-age on its head. It starts with Sanda and her life in an ordinary London suburb but quickly descends into the nightmare of a Serbian orphanage where she comes to uncover the horrifying truth about her past and her parents. Kirkus Reviews describe the book as ‘believable and compelling … a suspenseful, engaging coming-of-age tale.’ ‘The Edge of Me’ will be available online and on bookshelves in June this year. 2015 will mark the twentieth anniversary of both the Srebrenica massacre and the War’s end, and will see refugees, orphans and relatives participating in commemorations across Europe. Among other appearances, Jane will be giving a reading at a Remembering Srebrenica event for Srebrenica Memorial Week 4th to the 12th July. Blowfish Books was founded in 2014 by authors for authors with a vision to nurture and publish the work of new original writers. A driving force for Blowfish is the willingness to take risks – tackling a sensitive conflict with their debut release does just that.
