If you’ve yet to read this superb book (perfectly understandable if you live under a rock) then now is the perfect time to start. It is followed by Black Summer, which was released in June 2019, and The Curator will be out in summer 2020.
Samantha Baines’ debut children’s book Harriet Versus the Galaxy was reviewed in last week’s Lancashire Evening Post:
“A hilarious and heartfelt debut novel… Full of warmth and humour, Harriet Versus the Galaxy - beautifully illustrated by deaf artist Jess Maria Flores - is a taste of friendship, empowerment, disability and one little girl’s fight to save the planet.”
Samantha was also featured in The Bookseller last week in their ‘5 Questions’ feature (see photo below).
