I mean, when you get right down to it, every one of Pat Zietlow Miller's picture books are remarkable. Am I right?! But this one is truly, exceptionally, undeniably REMARKABLE. As illustrated by the title: REMARKABLY YOU!

In true Pat fashion, this exciting new picture book is a blend of leap-off-the-tongue language, effortless effervescence, and tons of heart. The manuscript is a lyrical celebration of the individual—the special delights of being YOU. What could be better?

REMARKABLY YOU was acquired by Alexandra Cooper at HarperCollins Children's, who has already brought on board an amazing illustrator: the super talented Patrice Barton! Stay tuned for spring 2019, because this is going to be one amazing book.

Hooray and congrats to Pat and all!

Since its first publication four years ago, readers all across the country have been falling in love with J. Anderson Coats's unforgettable characters and the richly rendered world of medieval Wales, in her widely acclaimed YA debut The Wicked and the Just. Next year, she will be shifting her lens slightly with the publication of her MG historical debut The Many Reflections of Miss Jane Deming.

But J. Anderson Coats is never one for standing still. Now, her lens is shifting yet again, bringing to light another rich historical landscape: Only this time, it is an ever so slightly skewed, alternate history—painting a world that isn't quite real, however much it resembles our own in many ways.

The new MG novel is set in an occupied nation, and follows the daughter of known subversives as she is sent to a re-educational school and must learn how to walk the line between rebellion and survival. UNGOVERNABLE GIRLS was enthusiastically acquired once again by Reka Simonsen at Atheneum, and will be marching onto shelves all across the country in 2018.

Huge congratulations, Jillian!
