From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 13 March 2015

British author Alice Oseman was just 17 years old when she wrote her debut young adult novel, Solitaire, which she describes as being about "a pessimistic 16 year old who gets a wake-up call at the hands of teenage blogger anarchists and ice skating idiots". The heroine of the book's been dubbed "a Holden Caulfield for the internet age", and the novel's slated as being for fans of authors like John Green and Rainbow Rowell. Alice's second book is due out this year. She blogs on Tumblr.
