News @ Eleven


Great news for the Elevensies!

Reviews
Helen Landalf's FLYAWAY received this review from School Library Journal:
"...This slim novel moves quickly as Stevie grapples with friends experimenting with drugs, a budding romance, and the confusion that comes with someone finally believing in her. Despite Stevie’s angry, defensive voice, readers will like her. They’ll cringe at some of the choices she makes and cheer as she learns to finally put herself first instead of continuing to be caught up in the maelstrom of her mother’s problems. In the face of bleakness, Stevie offers hope for the other victims that addiction creates."

Foreign Sales
The German edition of Julia Karr's XVI is set to release in December.

TV Deals

Sub-Rights

Second Books
HAVOC: A Deviants Novel, the sequel to Jeff Sampson's YA debut VESPER, received a nice review in VOYA:

"The second installment in the Deviants series finds Emily Webb facing more questions than answers: Why does she change from mousy 'Daytime' Emily to brashly assertive 'Nighttime' Emily to frightening 'Werewolf' Emily? Are there others like her? Who—or what—are the mysterious shadowmen? When did cheerleaders develop a talent for telekinesis? Most importantly: What does an agricultural research company called BioZenith have to do with all of these mysteries? 

"Havoc picks up directly after the conclusion of Vesper (Balzer + Bray, 2011/VOYA April 2011), and although the narration tries to recap events from the first book, readers will want to experience the books in order. The intriguing storyline and action are interspersed with analytic commentary from some sort of reporting agency that is, thus far, unnamed. Clues are gradually revealed, but most of these lead to even more mysteries, paving the way for a long, complex, and enjoyable series."
—Aarene Storms

VESPER will release in paperback at the end of December, just in time to buy with newly received holiday gift cards, followed by the hardcover release of HAVOC on January 24, 2012.



On January 19, 2012, the sequel to Julia Karr's XVI, titled TRUTH, will be released.


A MILLION SUNS, the sequel to Beth Revis's ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, will release on January 10, 2012.

Booklist says of the novel: "Revis’ interweaving of science fiction, romance,and action is deft—an especially impressive feat given the condensed time line under which this story
operates." The review went on to add that "…Revis just might make straight-up sci-fi cool again.”

Romantic Times gives A MILLION SUNS 4.5 stars and says, “The second in Revis’ Across the Universe trilogy is as twisty as the first! You’ll feel the spaceship walls closing in as Elder and Amy race to find a way to save the day. Can’t wait for the third, to find out how it all ends.”
