You all know who Jennifer E. Smith is - the gorgeous author of YA novels such as The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, This Is What Happy Looks Like and The Geography of You and Me. She's best known for writing gorgeous stories about love, life and creating your own destiny (with a little bit of help from fate along the way).
Well, she's only gone and written another BRILLIANT book - and....
We're thrilled to announce that Jen is becoming a member of the MKB author #squad. We'll be publishing Windfall next year in May 2017! And we've got all the info you need to know about the book right here.
In Windfall, Smith introduces readers to a teenage girl named Alice who doesn’t believe in luck—at least not the good kind. But she does believe in love, and for the last few years, she’s been pining for her best friend, Teddy. On his eighteenth birthday, Alice buys him a lottery ticket, and to their astonishment, he wins 145 million dollars. At first, it seems like a dream come true, especially since the two of them are no strangers to misfortune. Soon, though, the money begins to feel like more of a curse than a windfall, and as they deal with the ripple effects, Alice and Teddy learn that sometimes luck and love can intersect in unexpected ways.
Rachel Petty, Editorial Director at Macmillan Children's Books, says: “I’ve loved Jennifer’s books for years now – they’re the perfect mix of beautiful writing, romance, wish-fulfilment and total escapism. I’m absolutely thrilled that Macmillan will be her new publishing home in the UK.”
Jennifer E. Smith is the author of Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between, The Geography of You and Me, This Is What Happy Looks Like, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, The Storm Makers, You Are Here, and The Comeback Season. She earned a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and her work has been translated into thirty-three languages. She currently lives in New York City.
