Death in the Spotlight has been out for a month in the UK and Ireland – and so has Daisy Wells! If you’ve read it, you’ll know that in this book, Daisy finally gets her first crush … on another girl.
I’m not going to tell you who, just in case you haven’t picked up Death in the Spotlight yet – but it’s a story line that I’m so excited to have written, and I’m thrilled at the responses it’s had from readers.
Now my friend Charlie Morris, who read an early draft of Death in the Spotlight, and I have written an article for the Penguin website about what Daisy coming out means to us, and why it’s so important that children’s books should be full of LGBTQ+ characters. Enjoy – and thank you so much for your support!
