Opening a book by Jennifer Nielsen comes with one surefire guarantee: You will be transported, immediately and unequivocally, to another world. Her middle-grade historical epics include the bestselling and pulse-pounding A NIGHT DIVIDED and RESISTANCE, both of which are flying off shelves all across the country.
What's that you say? You want her to publish *another* historical thriller? Well, you're in luck. Here's the deal announcement that came out today:
Lisa Sandell at Scholastic Press has acquired New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen's (THE FALSE PRINCE and A NIGHT DIVIDED) next historical middle-grade adventure. THE CARRIER is set in turn-of-the-century Lithuania, where books have been outlawed, and a girl becomes involved in the struggle to keep the printed word—and her country's culture and identity—alive. Publication is planned for Fall 2019.
Yes, folks! Not only is this incredible new book on the horizon, but it's on the actually-not-too-far-off horizon (relatively speaking, that is in publishing terms J)! Stay tuned, folks – it's another one not to miss.
