Deadline reported, Cohen Media Group has acquired the rights of ‘Maiden Voyage’ by Tania Aebi. It’s a memoir that was pitched as Young Adult by screenwriter Joel Silverman.
You can read the premise of the novel below:
As a troubled New York City teen in the mid-1980s, Aebi channeled her struggle to find herself into an impulsive decision to sail around the world with only her cat. The result was a harrowing and exhilarating journey, with an enduring tropical love story, all of which she vicariously shares with the gravely ill mother she had never been able to understand or embrace until this journey.
