We are all celebrating over here at the Highway because some amazing news was just announced in Publishers Weekly:
Alison Weiss at Egmont USA has acquired two YA novels by Kirsten Hubbard, author of Like Mandarin, Wanderlove, and the forthcoming Watch the Sky. The first, Cloudforest, is a speculative thriller in which a teen overcoming a traumatic incident joins her mother at a healing center in a Latin American rain forest, only to discover a dangerous ability that will transform her life whether she wants it to or not. Publication is tentatively scheduled for spring 2016, with the sequel, Red Rocks, tentatively scheduled for spring 2017. Lauren Pearson brokered the deal on behalf of Michelle Andelman at Regal Literary for world English rights.
