What do you take when you combine a science nerd with a desire to be popular? This is the question posed by the protagonist of Anna Staniszewski’s latest madcap school story. Anna is known for her side-splitting stories of everyday mayhem and misshaps – and this new story is deliciously right on target.
Here are the deal details for your decided delight:
Amanda Maciel at Scholastic has acquired Anna Staniszewski’s next two middle-grade novels: CLIQUE HERE and DOUBLE CLIQUE, following a twelve-year-old girl who decides to try to become popular using the scientific method—with a whole lot of unforeseen, and often hilarious, consequences. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency represented the deal, for North American rights. The first book will publish in summer 2021.
