My rock star agent, Kerry Sparks, finalized the deal today (which, I have to point out, was her LAST day in the office before maternity leave). The timing was perfect.
And here's the announcement from Publisher's Marketplace:
Kate Birch's DELIVER ME, in a dystopian society governed by people who are determined to create the perfect race, for the first time in her life a girl has a choice to make: submit to the will of the Union, or find a way to save her best friend before she is lost forever, to Meredith Rich at Bloomsbury Spark, for publication in Spring 2014, by Kerry Sparks at Levine Greenberg Literary Agency (World).
EEEK! I'm over the moon... and here's an illustration to go with it.
