It’s publication day for Twenty Questions for Gloria in the United States! Two months after my new YA novel came out in the UK, the American edition – published by Wendy Lamb Books, an imprint of Penguin-Random House in New York – has hit the bookshops, virtual or otherwise, on the other side of the Atlantic.
To mark the occasion, here are a couple of quotes from the most recent U.S. reviews:
“Taut and mysterious…Bedford’s skilful writing and unusual format will draw in teens who identify with the urge to cast off the mundane and find their place in the world.” – Booklist.
“Dropping clues with absolute control over the novel’s trajectory, Bedford builds tension from the initial interview to the surprising final scene.” – The Horn Book.
