October 6, 2009 - Out of the Box to be published with Orca in Spring 2011

Filed under Book News

My wonderful editor Sarah Harvey, at Orca Book Publishers, has just called to say they’ve accepted the juvenile fiction manuscript that I was working on this year! It’ll be coming out in Spring 2011. Out of the Box is about thirteen-year-old Ellie who’d rather listen to tango music than go shopping and who can hardly wait to spend a summer rummaging through a basement full of treasures with her eccentric aunt, Jeanette. An unusual instrument with mysterious past and a surprising truth about her own family are about to change forever the way she sees herself and her future. I loved working with Orca on After Peaches, and I can hardly wait to get at revisions for this next novel!
