From Publisher's Marketplace

It's only been a couple weeks since her last deal was announced, but really, is there such a thing as too much good news?


I'm sure that Kate won't have time to blog about this until she's done with ALA madness, but since I am just sitting at home, I've got plenty of time to brag. This is part of what will keep Ms. Messner busy for the next couple years:

Middle grade 

Kate Messner's EYE OF THE STORM, set in a dystopian world with killer tornadoes, corporations that profit from them, and a group of teens at an elite science camp who risk everything to expose their society's dark secrets and find a way to stop the storms, plus another standalone novel, again to Walker, by Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary Agency.


  1. Congratulations to both of you!

  2. Congrats to both Kate & you!! The book sounds cool!

  3. Congratulations to Kate and Jenn! I just finished an ARC of Sugar and Ice and Gianna Z is one of my fave middle-grade books this year. Kate is so talented!
