HUGE OPERATIVE TOP SECRET NEWS REVEALED!


The world is full of cool things. Sometimes these things include Ryan Gosling Tumblr pages. Sometimes they include the latest Hunger Games meme. But every once in a while there’s something so cool, it leaves the operatives in a state similar to what some may confuse as Bieber Fever.

Like this.




Well, today’s super cool thing is waaaaaay cooler than Justin Bieber because yesterday, our very own Agent Homey C, announced some very exciting news!

You see, Agent Homey C wrote this kickass time travel story with swoony characters. And her stealthy agent sent this kickass story to numerous editors. And these editors—being the smart publishing people that theyare—knew right then and there that this kickass time travel story was, well, KICKASS. So they had an auction. And after a whirlwind week of phone calls and offers and jumping up and down, a book deal was born. And now Agent Homey C and her amazing book, All Our Yesterdays, have found a home at Disney-Hyperion!


From the Publisher's Weekly announcement:

Disney Believes In ‘Yesterdays’
In another major YA acquisition leading up to Bologna, Emily Meehan at Disney-Hyperion won North American rights at auction to Cristin Terrill’s debut, All Our Yesterdays. The YA book, which was sold by Diana Fox at Fox Literary, fetched an advance rumored to be in the six-figure range, and the book is scheduled for fall 2013. There is also strong interest in the title--Disney said it was pitched as “a cross between The Terminator and The Time Traveler’s Wife”--in Hollywood. The novel, given its comparative titles, unsurprisingly has a time travel element; it’s about two teenage girls, the wealthy and popular Marina and the impoverished (and imprisoned) Em, who are, in actuality, the same person.


On behalf of the operatives and teen spies of YA Confidential:

CONGRATULATIONS, Cristin!


We’re so proud of you and wish you nothing but EPICness and lots and lots of sprinkle-covered cupcakes! We can’t wait to see your book on the shelves in 2013!

(Look at all those people celebrating Cristin's book deal. This news is HUGE!)
