Rhyme Schemer
K.A. Holt

One thing you should know about Kari Anne Holt: She is a novel writing machine. No, really! Her most recent book, RHYME SCHEMER, came out from Chronicle in October to rave reviews, and she has two more books still forthcoming.

For those of us who have gotten to know and love her rich characters, quirky wit, and moving storylines, there's even more good news ahead. This week, Kari has sold yet another book, again to the luminous Tamra Tuller at Chronicle.

In BEYOND THE RAILS, Kari examines the journey of two young runaways who leave their homes south of the border to sneak across into the US. However they pictured this land of plenty, however, the reality that awaits them is a lot harsher—and more dangerous—than they ever expected.

Exploring the pertinent subject of young illegal immigrants, Kari Holt paints a vivid and unforgettable story. Look for BEYOND THE RAILS in 2016—it's one you won't want to miss!

Congratulations, Kari!

Mortal Heart

Tired of hearing all the good news coming in for Robin LaFevers' MORTAL HEART? No? Good, because there's a whole new list of praise for this book we want to share! First off, a starred review from Shelf Awareness! They love how "LaFevers blends history, intrigue and the forces of influence, while also putting a human face on the events". Then MORTAL HEART popped up as 6th on the Winter 2014–2015 Kids' Indie Next List. Move over Katniss Everdeen, the nuns of St. Mortain are the new girls on fire!

There's more good news, if you can believe it... School Library Journal has a lovely interview with Robin and if you haven't seen it, you'll want to check it out. It's so insightful as to why Robin wrote this amazing series. Congratulations, Robin! The His Fair Assassin trilogy is going places!
