I am so pleased to announce that Susan Vaught, author of Trigger and My Big Fat Manifesto, among others, has a new untitled novel underway with Bloomsbury! In the new story, seventeen-year-old Del faces his coming adulthood with a felony on his record that will shape the rest of his life, all because of a mutually consenting "sexting" incident with his girlfriend three years earlier. Susan does such an amazing job of capturing the voices of teens in crisis (I dare you to try to get Trigger's Jersey Hatch out of your mind after reading that one), and Del is no exception. One fun fact is that Del has a parrot who plays a crucial role in the story, and Susan herself has a parrot who often keeps her company while she's writing.
The acquiring editor at Bloomsbury is Margaret Miller. Congratulations, Susan!
