Have you had the pleasure of reading THE ADVENTURES OF A GIRL CALLED BICYCLE? If not, I'm sorry to say this but you must stop everything right now and do so. To meet Bicycle is to fall in love with her; there's nothing more to it.
Okay. Now that you have done that, you are sure to be a Christina Uss fan for life. Thus, I am wildly excited to share that there is a brand new book on the horizon from this amazing and talented author. Here's the scoop, my raring-to-go readers:
Lily Kessinger at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has acquired The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle author Christina Uss's middle-grade novel Erik Vs. Everything, the story of a boy whose life motto is Avoid Stuff, while his family seems determined to bring out his inner Viking. The deal was managed by Ammi-Joan Paquette at Erin Murphy Literary Agency for World rights. Publication is planned for Fall 2020.
If you loved Bicycle, you will equally fall for the affable and reluctantly adventurous Erik. I know this release date is a little ways out yet, but go ahead and mark your calendars now. You can thank me later J
