Default British student, 21, secures million-dollar book deal in US

British student, 21, secures million-dollar book deal in US

Sep 9, 2020

A British-Nigerian student has secured a seven-figure book deal with a US publisher for her debut thriller at the age of just 21.

Faridah bk-ymd spent two years writing Ace of Spades while juggling a degree in English, Chinese, and Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen.

Faridah, who is Muslim, chose not to attend booze-filled student gatherings and instead spent her evenings staying up until 4am writing. She said it was a dream come true when publisher MacMillan agreed to publish not just Ace of Spades, but a second novel as well.

Described by her publishers as a cross between Gossip Girl and Get Out, the novel follows the story of musician Devon, and head girl Chiawaka, the only two black students navigating life in a majority white private school.
