Sometimes book news comes quick, and other times—for one reason or another—things catch the slow boat. This, my friends, is undoubtedly the latter. However, the FANTASTIC side to this is that the wonderful deal announcement which are you just now learning about is actually publishing . . . THIS MONTH!

Yep, you read that right. For those (like me) who may find it hard to believe, we are literally in July 2019 right now. What a concept.

Here’s the deal announcement, for your reading pleasure: 

Aimee Friedman at Scholastic has acquired Suzanne Nelson’s SHAKE IT OFF, about a girl who is not at all happy about spending the summer mixing milkshakes on her aunt and uncle’s dairy farm, until her shakes catch the eye of a cute boy, and complications ensue. Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the deal for World rights. Publication will be in July 2019. 

There are a few more weeks yet to wait, but this lovely book is dropping on July 30th—so mark those calendars. Congratulations, Suzanne!
