London Metropolitan University Creative Writing graduate Lil Chase has published the first novel in her three book series
Chase, who finished her BA in 2008, has already published two successful novels for children; Boys for Beginners (2011) and Secrets, Lies, and Locker 62 (2012), to both commercial and critical success.
Chase's new series, The Boys' School Girls, follows the adventures of the first cohort of girls admitted to Hillcrest High Boys' School. The three books in the series will be published in quick succession in 2014 and 2015 by Quercus Books.
Chase’s books challenge gender stereotypes while creating heart-warming tales about families, friendships and the challenges of growing up as a girl in contemporary Britain. Her earlier books have earned Chase a passionate and dedicated fan following that her new series is likely to cement, and expand.
