I'm thrilled to share the news that appeared today in the Publisher's Weekly Rights Report:

Joy Peskin at Farrar, Straus and Giroux has preempted world rights to a YA project based on Dashka Slater's New York Times Magazine piece, "The Fire on the 57 Bus in Oakland" about two teenagers – one African-American, one agender – on both sides of an alleged hate crime. The book, entitled The 57 Bus, is slated for fall 2017. Erin Murphy at Erin Murphy Literary Agency negotiated the deal.
