The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle

The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle

Christina Uss’s debut MG novel, THE ADVENTURES OF A GIRL CALLED BICYCLE, was published in 2018, to quick and broad acclaim. It received 3 starred reviews, is being published in Russian and Chinese, and can be found on a ton of state lists and awards. More importantly, this quirky character quickly worked her way into readers’ hearts, where she has settled in for good. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I recommend you find a copy of this book, pronto. It’s a charmer in every sense of the word!)

That’s why today’s good news is so very especially good. Why is that, you ask? Well, our girl Bicycle is going to have MORE adventures! There’s gonna be a sequel!!! 

Margaret Ferguson at Margaret Ferguson/Holiday House has signed up A FEW BICYCLES MORE, which will continue the zany adventures of the intrepid Bicycle, whose peaceful life at the Mostly Silent Monastery is interrupted (once again) when she rediscovers her long-lost family--and abruptly finds herself one of quintuplets!

Five times the quirk! Five times the fun! This book is earmarked for Fall 2022, so mark your calendars accordingly.

Congratulations, Christina!
