CONGRATULATIONS to K.A. (Kelly) Barson - one of my fellow Bat Poets from the Vermont College Class of January 2011 - Viking will be publishing her book!
Here's the listing from Publishers' Marketplace:
Children's: Young Adult
K.A. Barson's 45 POUNDS, about a girl who doesn't fit -- not into her blended family, and certainly not into Snapz! clothes, and who is certain that if she could lose 45 pounds, her life would be perfectly normal, only to find that there is nothing perfect about normal, to Sharyn November at Viking Children's, by Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger (world).
Also, AFTER OBSESSION by the team of Steven E. Wedel and VCFA alum Carrie Jones was released last week. A great ghost story for getting you in the Halloween mood. Here's the book trailer.
