Susan Vaught has been an Edgar nominee AND an Edgar winner, so news of another middle-grade Vaught mystery is definitely something to be celebrated! 

Again, Susan is working with Sylvie Frank (on their fifth book together!) at Paula Wiseman Books / S&S:

Sylvie Frank at S&S/Wiseman has acquired Edgar winner Susan Vaught's next middle-grade novel, Finding What's Mine, in which a group of kids with developmental disabilities become embroiled in the decades-old mystery of a missing girl when their secret hideout is threatened. Publication is slated for fall 2021; Erin Murphy at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the deal for North American rights. 

I am SO EXCITED about the group of characters at the center of this story—kids with developmental disabilities, who are in a transitional classroom together in middle school, rarely see representation in children’s books. 

Once again, Susan Vaught’s work will give you characters you want to hug and a mystery to propel you through the pages. Congratulations, Susan!
