A publisher has picked up a memoir from a survivor of the Manchester, England, bombing.
Freya Lewis was just a few yards away from the bomber on that tragic day in May 2017, and the friend she was with even died in the explosion.
Lewis, now sixteen, spent days in a coma and months in a wheelchair but has made an incredible physical recovery and went on to co-write a book about the ordeal with journalist Amisha Desai.
The Bookseller reports that What Makes Us Stronger is the first book by a Manchester bombing survivor to be picked up by a publisher.
Seven Dials, which acquired the manuscript as well as dramatization rights, expects to release it in spring 2020.
