Trudi's good news

The ever-fabulous Trudi Trueit is pleased to share that Aladdin/Simon & Schuster has bought her tween novel!

 The book is titled Dreama’s Worst Nightmare, and is the story of two sisters, who are as opposite as two sisters can be (wouldn’t you know it?). Eleven year-old Jorgianna is brilliant, quirky, and hot-tempered. Her thirteen-year-old sister, Dreama, is striking, soft-spoken, and thoughtful. They’ve gotten along, despite their differences, but when genius Jorgianna gets moved up—not one, but two grades—into the eighth grade with Dreama, their tween universe is in for a big bang! This will be my second novel for S&S’s tween imprint, MIX. The first, Stealing Popular was released in 2012 (cover & author photo are attached).
Here is the official blurb from Publisher’s Weekly:
Alyson Heller at Simon and Schuster has acquired North American rights to Dreama's Worst Nightmare by Trudi Trueit for Aladdin's tween imprint, M!X. When an 11-year-old genius gets bumped up two grades into her sister's middle school, the bonds of sisterhood are pushed to their limits. It's set for fall 2015 publication; Rosemary Stimola of Stimola Literary Studio negotiated the deal. 

 Congratulations, Trudi! Well done!
