We've got a very recent addition to the EMLA team, twenty-three-year-old Corinne Duyvis, and today I am thrilled to announce a book deal for her debut YA novel!
OTHERBOUND is the fascinating story of a boy named Nolan who finds that whenever he closes his eyes—even just to blink—he is transported into the body of a mute servant girl from another world named Amara. Over the years, Nolan has adapted to this strange way of living, but one day Nolan learns that he might be able to have more effect upon this other world than just being an observer. And the more he becomes caught up in Amara's world, the more he becomes convinced that something is at work that is much deeper and more sinister than he had ever suspected.
This fast-paced novel will keep you guessing and keep your heart pounding right to the finish line. I'm thrilled to say that OTHERBOUND will be published by Amulet Books, with the lovely Maggie Lehrman editing.
Congratulations to Corinne, and welcome to EMLA!
