From Publisher's Weekly:

 

Elise Howard at Algonquin has acquired world rights to The Girl in the Well Is Me, a middle grade novel by Canadian author Karen Rivers; Krestyna Lypen will edit.  It tells the story of an 11-year-old who has an accident trying to impress some bullies; trapped in the dark, growing increasingly claustrophobic, she reflects on what has brought her to this point.  The deal also includes a second standalone middle-grade novel.   Publication is tentatively set for Fall 2016 and Fall 2017.  Jennifer Laughran at Andrea Brown Literary Agency negotiated the deal.
