Is confinement getting you down? Feeling the need for some bookish escape? Look no further! Our own immersive author extraordinaire—New York Times bestselling, award-winning, top thrills-per-page expert—Jennifer A. Nielsen has a new book on the way, and this is one you will NOT want to miss. 

Here’s the scoop: 

Lisa Sandell at Scholastic has acquired New York Times bestselling author of THE FALSE PRINCE and A NIGHT DIVIDED Jennifer A. Nielsen’s newest middle-grade historical thriller. RESCUE tells the story of a girl in Nazi-occupied France who becomes entangled with spies and secret codes in hopes of rescuing her father from a POW camp. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency did the deal for World rights, for publication in spring 2021.

The best thing about this announcement is that the book is on shelves SO VERY SOON – yes, you read that right, spring 2021. Which, as we know, is just around the corner. So mark those calendars now and be on the lookout!

 Congratulations, Jen!

Earlier in 2020, Random House Studio purchased TREE HOLE HOME by Melissa, illustrated by Amy Hevron, and now she’s back with another. This book will enthrall readers of all ages, and with Rob Dunlavey illustrating, will be a feast for the eyes as well. 


Melissa Stewart's WHALE FALL, about a whale fall, which is when a whale dies and drops to the bottom of the sea; as it decomposes, it supports a rich assortment of sea life, illustrated by Rob Dunlavey, to Ann Kelley at Random House Studio, for publication in spring 2023, by Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for the author, and by Ashley Valentine at Pippin Properties for the illustrator, on behalf of Elena Giovinazzo (world).

Congratulations, Melissa!
