The book was described as “a lyrical, heart-wrenching novel about four girls who miraculously relive the summer they were fifteen, discovering friendships, second chances, and one devastating secret.”
Foundry Literary + Media agent Stephen Barbara negotiated the deal with Kate Jackson. Rosemary Brosnan will edit both books.
Hillyer is also a poet, publishing Acquainted with the Cold in 2012.
