“A Mother’s Gift” selling well in the UK

Britney Spears’ debut novel, written with her mother Lynne, is selling well in the UK, despite negative reports saying otherwise. “A Mother’s Gift” has sold nearly 10,000 copies in the UK since it was first published in May, according to Boxtree. A spokesperson said “it’s selling very well indeed for a debut novel.” In the USA, the novel achieved a top five spot on The New York Times’ bestselling children’s book list.
