The word is out!
It is so satisfying when a debut author moves on to book number two, and so our own Lynda Mullaly Hunt embarks on her next adventure even as her first book, ONE FOR THE MURPHYS, is getting ready to hit shelves next month!
Lynda's second middle-grade novel, ALPHABET SOUP, is set in 1974, and it focuses on fifth grader Lucy, who hides the fact that she can't read by acting out in class. Then a new teacher sees through her bluster right into her heart. Lurking in Lucy's worried mind is the fact that her older brother is missing in action in Vietnam. The acquiring editor of world rights is again Nancy Paulsen at Nancy Paulsen Books, Penguin.
