New series from Libba Bray

Did you hear that Libba Bray, hot on the heels of her Printz win for Going Bovine, has just landed a new book deal at Little, Brown for a new YA series called The Diviners (to be published fall 2012).

In The Diviners, a supernatural fantasy series set in Manhattan during the 1920s, Bray follows a teen heroine she says is reminiscent of two of the era's most famous literary women — Zelda Fitzgerald and Dorothy Parker. Bray, who admitted to having always been fascinated by the Jazz Age, said she's looking forward "to offering readers a wild new ride full of dames and dapper dons, jazz babies and Prohibition-defying parties, conspiracy and prophecy — and all manner of things that go bump in the neon-drenched night.”

Sounds great. And I did so love the Gemma Doyle series. For more information, click here.
