My Critique Partner Got A Book Deal @ Harper Teen!


(via Publishers Weekly Children’s bookshelf)

I am SO excited today!

Publishers Weekly just announced that Rosemary Brosnan of Harper Teen acquired the debut novel GIRLS EVOLVED written by one of MY critique partners, Alexis Bass!

GIRLS EVOLVED, is about a seventeen-year-old girl and her best friends who have made it to second semester senior year heartbreak free by abiding by the wisdom of Marilyn Monroe: “A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left”, until Nathan Diggs moves to town and changes everything.

Alexis worked so hard on this book – I know because I was there through all the blood, sweat and tears. GIRLS EVOLVED is a fantastic YA Comtemporary that will take your emotions on a rollercoaster ride. I couldn’t be happier or more excited for Alexis today! Well, except for how excited I’ll be when her book release day comes in the Fall of 2014!


You can find Alexis on Twitter and on her blog as follows:
