I'm so proud to announce that Kody Keplinger's first middle grade novel, The Last Summer of the Swift Boys, sold to Scholastic!

From Publishers Weekly:
Jody Corbett at Scholastic has acquired North American rights to The Last Summer of the Swift Boys, a debut middle-grade novel by Kody Keplinger, author of several YA novels including The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). In her new book, a 12-year-old girl's life is turned upside down one summer when the father of her four best friends (the Swift brothers) leaves his family. Publication is scheduled for 2014; Joanna Volpe at New Leaf Literary & Media did the deal.
Congratulations to Kody! We're so proud of you--and we're sure you're all going to love Kody's first foray into books for younger readers!
