We're delighted to share that Chinese translation rights in Rhian Ivory's brilliant YA novel, The Boy Who Drew the Future, have sold to Beijing United Creation Culture Media Co. Ltd., thanks to the Rights People and Big Apple Agency, Inc. It'll be wonderful to see Rhian's beautiful novel, which was published by Firefly Press this September, in translation.
The Boy Who Drew the Future
Two boys, over a hundred years apart, have the same gift or curse — they draw things that come true.
Blaze (1860s) swaps his pictures for protection, with threats of the workhouse and witch trials hanging over him.
Noah (2010s) tries all he can to stop drawing, but the more he fights, the more it takes over. He just wants to pass for normal in his new school. As he gets closer to Beth, will he give himself away?
One boy hiding in the past, one in the present. Can their futures set them free?
