We’ll Just Ride Past travels to Slovenia | 3rd foreign rights sale for the title

We are really excited to share this bit of news: We’ll Just Ride Past by Ellen Strömberg has been sold to Slovenia, where it will be published by Mladinska Knjiga.

Mladinska Knjiga is the largest publishing house in Slovenia, boasting titles like Harry Potter, Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go and John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars: we could’t have wished for a better home for this title.

The book follows Manda and Malin, who are best friends in a small town where nothing ever happens. The girls are known as the Bicycles, because they’re always riding around looking for excitement, be it people to hang out with, a party, a little love – anything goes. When they’re not riding around, they can be found loitering around the convenience store or the library. 

In We’ll Just Ride Past, Strömberg, a perceptive depicter of emotional shifts and relationships, depicts in an equally believable and sharp way the restlessness of teenage, and its bittersweet nature.

Warm congratulations to the author!
