Deal Announcement: Simon & Schuster acquires debut middle grade novel by Sarah Lariviere, The Bad Kid

I’m so pleased to announce that Kristin Ostby at Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers has acquired Sarah Lariviere’s debut novel, THE BAD KID, in a pre-empt!  The Bad Kid is a mystery-comedy, set in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, starring Claudeline LeBernardin, who reads like a modern-day Harriet the Spy.  I love this book for its original voice, screwball humor, and for its salty with a heart-of-gold main character, Claude, and am so happy that it found a home with Kristin at S&S!

Sarah Lariviere's debut THE BAD KID, set in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, in which an eleven-year-old hopes to take over the "family business" previously run by her mobster grandfather, who has recently passed away -- all while trying to uncover a local scam artist and salvage her friendship with her BFF, to Kristin Ostby at Simon & Schuster Children's, in a pre-empt, for publication in summer 2016, by Susan Hawk at The Bent Agency (World English).

Please join me in congratulating Sarah!  You can learn more about Sarah and The Bad Kid on her site, here:
