"Quigley adeptly creates strong classroom scenes that convey an inclusive student body’s realistic dynamic and an endearing, assured seven-year-old protagonist who appreciates her cultural identity." - PW, starred review
I have had the worst case of travel FOMO over the last year -- and let's be honest, who hasn't? -- but Kristy Boyce has us covered! We're going to Amsterdam in HOT DUTCH DAYDREAM and I could not be more excited. I've been intrigued by Sage's character since HOT BRITISH BOYFRIEND was still in the initial query stages and I'm so thrilled we're going to see her take off on her own adventure!
Elizabeth Lynch at HarperCollins has acquired Kristy Boyce’s HOT DUTCH DAYDREAM, a standalone companion to Hot British Boyfriend. Sage gets the opportunity of a lifetime to attend a research conference in Berlin, but only if she agrees to spend the summer in Amsterdam as a live-in nanny for her advisor’s toddler. Sage is willing to put up with the germy hands and tantrums, but she isn't prepared for her advisor's totally off-limits teenage son that she can’t get off her mind. Publication is planned for Winter 2023; Tara Gonzalez at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the deal for World English rights.
Congratulations, Kristy! Fingers crossed for a research trip abroad soon!
