Penguin Random House Children’s will publish Malorie’s first novel in three years in April.
Chasing The Stars is a love story set in space, based on Shakespeare’s Othello. Malorie said: “I have wanted to write a story inspired by Othello for quite some time – it has always been one of my favourites of his plays, full of twists and turns – but, but of course, I wanted to do it my way. I’ve always been a huge fan of all types of science fiction and I loved the idea of Othello set in outer space, with Othello as a teenage girl.”
Chasing The Stars will be published in hardback on April 21st.
