I’m so excited to share the announcement of the sale of Niki Lenz’s first novel, Bernice Buttman’s Guide to Halfway, to Caroline Abbey of Random House Children’s Books!
Caroline Abbey at Random House has bought author Niki Lenz’s debut middle grade contemporary novel, Bernice Buttman’s Guide to Halfway, a story pitched as Honey Boo-Boo meets Sister Act, about a reformed bully sent to live with her nun aunt who has to decide whether to help the convent or fulfill her dream of becoming a stuntperson. The book will publish in spring 2019; Kate Testerman at KT Literary negotiated the deal for world rights.
Niki signed with me on a previous novel, as yet unsold, and when she told me about this project, I was immediately sold. Honey Boo Boo meets Sister Act? Yes please!!
Join me in congratulating Niki on Twitter!
