Debut YA author Sarah Wylie (pictured) landed a book deal this week with a book compared to My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. The YA book is entitled All These Lives.
Here’s the notice: “[It is] about a girl who believes she has nine lives and copes with her fraternal twin sister’s leukemia by setting out to rid herself of all her extra lives, only to discover that she might have only the one life after all, to Margaret Ferguson at Margaret Ferguson Books, in a two-book deal, at auction, by Suzie Townsend at FinePrint Literary Management (NA).”
The book will be part of Ferguson’s new imprint at Farrar, Straus, & Giroux. The editor has 30-years experience at FSG, and will launch the imprint in 2011.
