I’m so thrilled to share this news–read all about it below in the article from this week’s Publisher’s Weekly Children’s Bookshelf:
Rosemary Brosnan at HarperTeen has acquired at auction Gillian French‘s debut novel, Grit, about 17-year-old blueberry harvester Darcy Prentiss, a bad girl with a big heart, a big crush, and a devastating secret that eventually comes to light. Publication is planned for summer 2017; Alice Tasman at Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency did the two-book deal for North American rights.
A huge thanks to Alice and Rosemary for making this dream come true! I’ll keep posting updates as we draw closer to pub day.
