Middle-Grade Debut Deal for Lisa Tyre

I'm thrilled to announce a deal for debut author Lisa Tyre!  Lisa has written a contemporary middle grade novel that has everything going for it -- some of the best characters I've come across in a long time, small Southern town setting so real you'd swear you'd been there yourself, and some of the funniest lines I've ever read.  I love this book, and am so happy that we found it a home with Nancy Paulsen at her Penguin imprint!

You can learn more about Lisa and her book projects at her website,, or say hi on twitter: @LisaLewisTyre.


Middle grade 

Lisa Tyre's middle grade debut THE JUNKMAN'S DAUGHTER, in which a twelve-year old, determined to save her family's house from the meddling county, uncovers an ancestor's diary that holds clues to the location of a cache of Civil War era gold, a thief who might be her own great-great-great grandfather, and the hidden history of the Underground Railroad in her town, to Nancy Paulsen at Nancy Paulsen Books, for publication in summer 2015, by Susan Hawk at The Bent Agency (World English).
