Lavie Tidhar’s CANDY hits the streets!

CANDY, Lavie Tidhar‘s latest novel and first for young readers, is out today in the UK! Published by Scholastic, here’s the synopsis…

Guard your chocolate! Imagine living in a place where Mars bars are banned and sweeties are totally outlawed. Ugh – how depressing! In this miserable place, is it any wonder that gangsters trade in illegal sweeties? We can’t even blame them. Nelle Faulkner is a twelve-year-old private detective looking for her next client. So when notorious candy gangster Eddie de Menthe walks in and asks her to find a missing teddy bear, Nelle takes the case. But as soon as the teddy turns up, Eddie himself goes missing. Can Nelle track him down before all of them come to a sticky end?

From an author best known for his award-winning science fiction novels, CANDY is a ‘madcap crime caper’ told in his distinctive film noir style. Illustrations have been provided by Mark Beech.
