The Kissing Booth 2 is Coming!

February 2019

The Darley Anderson Children’s Agency is thrilled to announce that there will be a sequel to Beth Reekles’s hit YA novel, The Kissing Booth.


The second Kissing Booth novel, Going the Distance, will be published in the UK and Commonwealth by Penguin Random House in January 2020, to coincide with the major film release of The Kissing Booth 2 on Netflix.


Beth started writing her first book, The Kissing Booth, when she was just fifteen. She became a Wattpad sensation, then a published author, and last year Netflix released a film of The Kissing Booth which became the most-watched film in the world at the time, as thousands of fans fell in love with Elle and Noah. Going the Distance will continue Elle and Noah’s story as they face their biggest challenge yet… a long distance relationship.


Clare Wallace did the deal for the UK and Commonwealth Rights with Naomi Colthurst at Penguin Random House, as well as for The Beach House, a spin-off novella that will publish in eBook in May 2019. The Darley Anderson rights team are very excited to be representing Beth and Going the Distance internationally.
