Little Tiger has acquired Wintour’s Game, the first in an action-packed new teen series from Brían Dungan.

Karelle Tobias, Junior Editor at Little Tiger, acquired world all language rights from Helen Boyle at Pickled Ink in a three-book deal. Wintour’s Game will be published in August 2024, with book two and three to follow in Summer 2025 and Summer 2026 respectively.

Alex Wintour has only got this far in life by living off her wits. Well, that and an ability to see glimpses of the future. Then a robbery goes wrong, and her path is set on a collision course with the enigmatic teen millionaire Colman Reece, who needs her help for the heist of a lifetime.

But with high-speed car chases, a sinister sect on her tail and the hunt for a mysterious weapon underway, Alex soon learns that even being able to see the future doesn’t always give you the winning hand…

Perfect for fans of Artemis Fowl, Alex Rider and Lockwood & Co.

Karelle Tobias, Junior Editor said:

Brían’s writing hooked me from the very first chapter. Wintour’s Game is a pacy, cinematic thrill from start to finish, with compelling world building and a cast of dynamic characters that leap off the page. It’s been such a joy working with Brían to develop this incredible series, and I cannot wait for readers to meet Alex Wintour and explore the time bending society she’s drawn into.

Brían Dungan said:

Telling stories has always been something I’ve loved to do. But from the day I met Alex Wintour, it’s something I’ve had to do. Her vitality, vulnerability, audacity and rebellious teen spirit simply refused to be kept off the page. I couldn’t be happier to have found a home for her at Little Tiger and that we finally get to share the voice that’s been ringing so loudly in my head! Wintour. Is. Coming.

Little Tiger will publish Wintour’s Game in August 2024.
