May 2022 New Releases

Chasing After Knight by Heather Buchta (Penguin Workshop)
Nathaniel Tabachnik at Penguin Workshop has acquired world rights for Chasing After Knight, the sophomore YA novel by Heather Buchta. High school senior Alexa is a girl with a plan: ace her classes, nail the extracurriculars, and get into her dream college. But this "plan" is designed for one thing: to forget everything about Carson Knight, the boy she fell in love with, the boy she betrayed... and the boy who became a Hollywood star, renamed Cayden McKnight. Thanks to a school assignment, Alexa enters the world of bright lights and paparazzi to try to make amends with Carson, and confronts the question: what if the boy she loved is no longer there? Publication is scheduled for spring 2022; Michael Bourret at Dystel, Goderich & Bourret negotiated the deal for world rights.

Dark Room Etiquette by Robin Roe (HarperCollins)
Kristin Pettit at HarperCollins has acquired YA psychological suspense novel Dark Room Etiquette by Robin Roe (A List of Cages). Sixteen-year-old Sayers Wayte is rich, popular, and more than a little arrogant, until he is abducted by a man who takes away his name but swears his only goal is to protect Sayers. As Sayers starts losing track of time, he starts losing track of himself, too, and his bright world of privilege shrinks to a single dark room. Publication is slated for May 2022; Peter Steinberg at Foundry Literary + Media negotiated the deal for North American rights.

Blood and Moonlight by Erin Beaty
(Imprint) - pushed from July 2021, then pushed from December 2021.

In this medieval YA fantasy thriller, an orphan with a secret, magical sight gets caught between a mysterious genius and the serial killer he’s hunting.

Rising above the city of Collis is the holy Sanctum. And watching over its spires is Catrin, an orphan girl with unique skills—for she alone can spot the building’s flaws in construction before they turn deadly.

But when Catrin witnesses a murderer escaping the scene of his crime, she’s pulled into the web of a dangerous man who will definitely strike again. Assigned to capture the culprit is the mysterious, brilliant, and enigmatic Simon, whose insights into the mind of a killer are frighteningly accurate.

As the grisly crimes continue, Catrin finds herself caught between murderer and detective while hiding her own secret—a supernatural sight granted by the moon, destined to make her an outcast, and the only thing that might save her and those she loves from becoming the next victims...
