Something to Daydream About by Sydney Langford (Disney-Hyperion)
Elanna Heda at Disney-Hyperion has acquired Something to Daydream About and a second YA book by Deaf author Sydney Langford. Disney's Starstruck meets Once Upon a K-Prom in this YA rom-com in which Deaf 18-year-old Natalie spends a whirlwind summer teaching ASL to (and trying not to fall for) the lead singer of America's hottest boy band so he can communicate with his sister—all while trying to save her family's failing Deaf Center. Publication for book one is slated for spring 2025; Emily Forney at BookEnds Literary negotiated the deal for world English rights.

Last Hellos and First Goodbyes by Elba Luz (Disney Hyperion) - moved from 2024.
In this YA romcom, Puerto Rican perfectionist Alany Delgado vows to put her tragic past behind her and go to college loan-free, which comes to a screeching halt when her ex-childhood best friend shows up on the same wacky scholarship contest-circuit as her, dredging up old memories (as well as new feelings) that threaten to disrupt her future, her relationship, and her carefully curated life plan.

The Notorious Virtues by Alwyn Hamilton (Viking)
A glamorous media darling, a surprise heiress, and the magical competition of a lifetime.

At sixteen, Honora “Nora” Holtzfall is the daughter of the most powerful heiress in all of Walstad. Her family controls all the money–and all the magic–in the entire country. But despite being the center of attention, Nora has always felt like an outsider. When her mother is found dead in an alley, the family throne and fortune are suddenly up for grabs, and Nora will be pitted against her cousins in the Veritaz, the ultimate magical competition for power that determines the one family heir.

But there’s a surprise contestant this time: Lotte, the illegitimate daughter of Nora’s aunt. When Lotte’s absent mother retrieves her from the rural convent she’d abandoned her to, Lotte goes from being an orphan to surrounded by family. Unfortunately, most of them want her dead.

And soon, Nora discovers that her mother’s death wasn’t random–it was murder. And the only person she can trust to uncover the truth of what happened is a rakish young reporter who despises everything Nora and her family stand for.

With everyone against her, Lotte’s last hope is hunting for the identity of her father. But the dangerous competition–and her feelings for Theo, one of the Holtzfalls’ sworn protectors–turns her world upside down.
