I am so thrilled to announce that my next two middle-grade novels will be published by Scholastic!
“Cheryl Klein of Scholastic acquired North American rights to Focused, the second middle-grade novel by Alyson Gerber, in a two-book deal arranged by Kate McKean of Howard Morhaim Literary. In the novel, which centers on a girl named Clea, “the world of competitive chess meets Fish in a Tree”—a middle grade novel by Lynda Mullaly Hunt about a mathematically gifted girl struggling with dyslexia—“as Clea comes to terms with her ADHD diagnosis and discovers the different ways she can succeed,” said McKean. Gerber will publish her debut novel Braced with Scholastic’s Arthur A. Levine Books imprint this spring. Scholastic plans to publish Focused sometime in 2018, with David Levithan editing.” —Publishers Weekly
