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.
