Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers will publish two memoirs written by transgender teens Arin Andrews and Katie Rain Hill.
Here’s more from the press release: “The then-couple received national attention when they were featured on 20/20 in July 2013, which detailed how Andrews and Hill supported each other through their transitions and ultimately fell in love. The clip immediately went viral and the Oklahoma teens have since been covered in numerous national and international media outlets. They are currently featured in the Barneys campaign ‘Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters’ shot by Bruce Weber and starring transgender models.”
The video embedded above features the full 20/20 clip. Senior editor Christian Trimmer negotiated the terms for both deals and secured world rights. The publication date has been scheduled for September 30, 2014.
