May 9, 2011
Children’s: Young Adult
Screenwriter Lissa Price’s STARTERS, the first in a futuristic thriller series featuring a society where youth is coveted at an impossible price, and one girls’ ability to bring it all crumbling down, to Wendy Loggia at Delacorte, in a major deal, in a pre-empt, in a two-book deal, by Barbara Poelle of Irene Goodman Agency (NA).

Publishers Marketplace is a great resource for writers. You can subscribe to the free lunch or be a monthly paid subscriber. It’s especially useful when you are agent-searching.
