Jodi Lynn Anderson Lands Book Deal with Aladdin
August 10, 2012
Peaches series author Jodi Lynn Anderson has landed a book deal with Aladdin, an imprint at Simon & Schuster. The children's books author will be publishing a new middle-grade novel called The Ordinary World under the editorial direction of executive editor Liesa Abrams.
The book stars a 10-year-old girl named Grace Lockwood. According to Anderson's literary agent Rosemary Stimola, the book will feature "a myth-laden but recognizable world where reality TV co-exists with dragons, mermaids are a threat to cruise lines, and Sasquatches helped to win the American civil war." A release date has been set for fall 2014.
