“Edgar-winning Vaught, a neuropsychologist, has both personal and professional experience to draw on in crafting a narrator who is admirably smart and resilient despite an ‘itchy’ brain and a compulsion to count things.” —Booklist (STARRED)
“The acclaimed author follows up her celebrated The Poet X with a love letter to food and a tribute to young, single mothers... Acevedo’s second serving offers a much-needed nuanced exploration of teen parenting that belongs on all shelves.” ―School Library Journal (STARRED)
"Basically, if you love vampire ladies smooching non-vampire ladies, this is the book for you." ―Sam Maggs, author of Girl Squads and Wonder Women
Yes, indeed she does! The prolific and multi-faceted author of the recent young adult non-fiction titles GOOGLE IT and ELON MUSK: A MISSION TO SAVE THE WORLD, as well as the forthcoming picture book, SAVING THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, is back to her old tricks. That is to say, she is writing amazing new books and getting them published!
Here is the deal announcement that just posted last week, with everything you need to know about this delicious new book in the cookpot:
Melissa Kim at Islandport Press has acquired world rights to Anna Redding’s nonfiction picture book CHOWDER RULES: THE TRUE STORY OF AN EPIC FOOD FIGHT, about the great showdown between Maine and Manhattan over the correct way to make the beloved dish, with illustrations by Vita Lane. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the author, and the illustrator represented herself. Publication is planned for Fall 2020.
Huge congratulations, Anna!!!
