At the Publishers Weekly website, 5/9/2011:
In a sizable two-book pre-empt, Wendy Loggia at Delacorte bought a futuristic YA thriller series by newcomer Lissa Price called Starters. Barbara Poelle at Irene Goodman brokered the North American rights deal and said the series is set in a dangerously youth-obsessed society where one girl has the â€œability to bring it all crumbling down.â€
That was drafted by my wonderful agent and my amazing new editor. And it quite cleverly doesn’t say too much.
I’m thrilled that my debut novel will be at Random House!
