Flip out in paperback
Today is publication day for the UK paperback edition of Flip. Walker Books have gone with the same cover as the special flexiback version, originally published in March 2011, but incorporating a new tagline about the novel’s shortlisting last year for the Costa. At £6.99, it’s also a quid cheaper! Here’s a link to the paperback’s page on Amazon, where you can snaffle a copy for just £5.24. The gap between the two editions has been unusually long, partly due to the flexiback going into several reprints on the back of Flip‘s success in winning or being shortlisted for so many teen/YA prizes.
Bedford’s taut style and psychological insight make Flip a gripping thriller. (Amanda Craig, The Times)
A serious contemplation on what constitutes the soul.
(Dinah Hall, Sunday Telegraph)
Flip is captivating from beginning to end, with rich characters and a fascinating mystery. The story is also superbly written and brings out many themes that will leave you pondering when you’re done. Highly recommended. (James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner)
