The prolific Susan Vaught, whose YA novels fill an entire shelf in the EMLA office, has just signed up another! Here's the Publishers Lunch announcement:
Trigger and My Big Fat Manifesto author Susan Vaught's Riggador, in which a privileged NYC teen with a kleptomania problem is swept into a love triangle with two intriguing brothers who are fighting for leadership of a secret society of modern-day pirates, again to Victoria Wells Arms of Bloomsbury Children's, for publication in spring 2012.
Many people don't know that Susan lives a secret life, under another name, writing bestselling adult romance novels. It's going to be terrifically fun to see her put those chops to work along with her expertise in writing about troubled teens in this new novel.
Susan's Before I Knew You, which was originally announced with the former title Lost in Space and involves a teen guy living with the repercussions of "sexting" gone wrong as he moves into adulthood, will be released in fall 2011 from Bloomsbury.
