Launched in 2013, Soho Teen’s select list (7-10 titles a year) began with YA mysteries and thrillers. Over the years, we’ve broadened this niche to allow for novels of adolescent identity and self-discovery, particularly those with a unique format or narrative structure. Our diverse authors include acclaimed YA icons, filmmakers and screenwriters, rock stars, and New York Times bestsellers—and above all, debuts from exciting voices.
A NOTE TO AGENTS: Soho Teen is closed for submissions until 2020. We look forward to considering new projects in the new year!

“Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know follows two Muslim girls, separated by centuries, as one tries to track down the missing history of the other. Readers will be entranced as Khayyam puts together the pieces of Leila’s story . . . Samira Ahmed deftly weaves history, classic literature, an art mystery, and a complicated romance.”
—Rachel Strolle, Teen Librarian, Glenside Public Library District
“Ahmed blends art history, romance, passion and purpose as vibrant brush strokes on a canvas in this passionate narrative about the power of the past to influence the present. ”
