GIVE ME FOUR REASONS is my new novel, due for release in July 2011. It is hugely different from the Extinction Series, so for those of you who prefer your stories to be about real kids doing real things in the real world, then this book is for you!
It is published by Little Hare Books (www.littleharebooks.com) and is available in book shops and online bookstores. I was actually working on “Give Me Four Reasons” at the same time as I was writing the Extinction Series. One day I’d be travelling backwards through time with Annie and Mac, trying to stop the human race from becoming extinct, and the next day I’d be at high school with Paige, trying to sort out her problems with her friends! It was certainly a busy year for me.
I absolutely love “Give Me Four Reasons.” Even though I have written it and re-written it and read and reread it dozens of times now, I still laugh and cry and get excited and scared with Paige, my lead character, every time. I hope you will too.
Here’s the blurb from the back of the book. Let me know what you think.
Paige has been best friends with Elfi and Rochelle ever since she can remember. On the last day of the school year they make a vow to stay friends forever. But when Paige gets back to school after the summer, she accidentally falls in with the popular crowd and things start to get complicated. Can Paige stay true to her old friends when her new friends don’t like them? And can she stay true to herself when she isn’t sure who she is anymore?
GIVE ME FOUR REASONS is a powerful new novel by Lizzie Wilcock, the acclaimed author of Losing It.
