Take a first look inside Ella on the Outside – and win an exclusive signed proof copy!

This May we’re utterly delighted to be publishing Ella on the Outside by Cath Howe – a beautifully written middle grade novel with an incredibly authentic voice, hugely relatable characters and relationships (with real psychological depth), and a gripping story with heart and warmth. Part Jacqueline Wilson, part Anne Fine, this is a truly exciting debut.

And today we’re thrilled to share a very first look inside the book – AND offer you the chance to win one of three signed proof copies of the book.

These striking proofs have begun to appear on Twitter – and the response to the book so far has been fantastic:

If you’d like to win one of these rare proofs of the book, all you need to do is follow the @NosyCrowBooks Twitter account and retweet this message. We’ll select our winners at the end of next week.

But even if you don’t manage to win one of these proofs, you can still read the book’s opening chapters – we’re sharing an exclusive preview today!

Here’s a look inside Ella on the Outside:

Pre-order the book.

And here’s a bit more about the book itself:

Ella is the new girl at school. She doesn’t know anyone and she doesn’t have any friends. And she has a terrible secret. Ella can’t believe her luck when Lydia, the most popular girl at school, decides to be her new best friend – but what does Lydia really want? And what does it have to do with Molly, the quiet, shy girl who won’t talk to anyone?

A gripping story of secrets, lies and friendship from an exciting new voice in children’s fiction…

Ella on the Outside will be in shops from the beginning of May – you can pre-order the book here. And if you’d like to stay up to date with all of our book news, you can sign up to our books newsletter at this page, or with form below.
