In case that’s too small to read, here’s the lovely pertinent details:

Howard Reeves at Abrams/Amulet has bought Rebecca Petruck’s Will Nolan Eats Bugs, in which a class clown tries not to worry about how his parents fight all the time by being funnier than ever. But a “hilarious” presentation with insects as snacks leads to heckles, retaliation, and possible expulsion. Publication is set for fall 2016; Kate Schafer Testerman at kt literary did the deal for world English rights.

Please join me in congratulating Rebecca on Twitter at @RebeccaPetruck.
