Well, it’s official. The dates are set, the exclusives confirmed and Kate is currently squirreling away to create some revealing guest posts and put the all important As in the Q&As. Hold onto your proverbial hats because we’re off on a UK virtual book tour, taking The 10pm Question by Kate de Goldi to some of the most vibrant and exciting teen fiction blogs out there.
Kate de Goldi
Twelve-year-old Frankie Parsons has a head full of questions. Only Ma takes him seriously, but unfortunately she is the cause of the most worrying question of all, the one Frankie can never bring himself to ask. Then a new girl arrives at school with questions of her own: questions that make Frankie’s carefully controlled world begin to unravel.
"De Goldi is the brightest star in Templar’s new and exciting fiction list. This is an effusive novel packed with garrulous dialogue and layers of characters, that really capture the themes of family complexity and mental health. Definitely one to watch in young adult fiction this autumn."
