Stacey Barney at G.P. Putnam’s Sons has bought two novels by Caroline Starr Rose. BLUE BIRDS, a middle-grade novel in verse, centers on a forbidden friendship between Alis, the only girl in Virginia’s doomed first settlement, and Kimi, a Roanoke girl. Blue Birds will publish in winter 2015, and an untitled novel will follow. Tracey Adams at Adams Literary negotiated the deal for world rights.
I’m so excited to introduce you to Alis and Kimi, friends!
