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!

“Surreal but at the same time so real, and intensely meaningful. This is the kind of book no one writes anymore, but that everyone wants—and needs—to read.”
—Maggie Thrash, Los Angeles Times Book Prize–nominated author of Honor Girl, on Bones of a Saint
“Bones of a Saint reads like a dream—I found myself muttering the word 'wow' over and over as I read. My favorite stories are coming-of-age ones that find a new way into the teenage struggle, a new lens through which to view the fight for one's innocence against the adult world's corruption and chaos. Bones of a Saint is exactly that, but there's something else—a grittiness and an honesty that earns the reader's trust from page one. It's like nothing I've read in years.”
