This year is the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act, which gave women (some women) the vote for the first time. To mark this, Usborne are reissuing my book previously called POLLY'S MARCH, with a new look for the whole series - there are six books about 6 Chelsea Walk at different times, two titles each by myself, Adele Geras and Ann Turnbull. The new title is GIRLS FOR THE VOTE, and this appealing cover art is by Tiziana Longo.

UNTIL WE WIN is already published by Barrington Stoke. It's a short dyslexia-friendly novel about Lizzie, who becomes involved in the Votes for Women campaign in the summer leading up to the outbreak of war in 1914. Here it is, with its lovely embroidered cover by Stewart Easton (who also made the cover for TILLY'S PROMISE).
