Congratulations, Kim!

This just in from today's PW Children's Bookshelf newsletter:
Deirdre Langeland at Roaring Brook has acquired Pickle, a middle-grade debut novel by Kimberly Baker, in a pre-empt. The novel, described as part Frindleand part Fight Club for middle-schoolers, is about a 12-year-old boy who finds himself outgrowing his best friend while managing a group of new friends into a league of undercover pranksters. The author is the assistant regional advisor and conference coordinator for SCBWI Western Washington. Publication is set for fall 2012; Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger did the deal for world rights.
Hip hip hooray for Kim!
