July 2023 New Releases



Nightbirds by Kate J. Armstrong (Penguin/Nancy Paulsen Books)
Stacey Barney at Penguin/Nancy Paulsen Books has acquired, in a preempt, North American rights to YA fantasy debut Nightbirds and its sequel, Fyrebirds, by Kate J. Armstrong. Pitched as Carnival Row meets The Great Gatsby, the story is set in a 1920s-inspired world where magic is illegal, but you can taste its delights if you know where to look. The mysterious Nightbirds—girls who can bestow their rare powers with a kiss, provided you can pay the price—are the city's best-kept secret until their identities are unmasked, forcing them into the shadows, where they discover their true powers. Josh Adams at Adams Literary negotiated the two-book deal for publication beginning in summer 2023.
