Caitlin Kittredge’s YA fantasy trilogy THE IRON CODEX, beginning with THE WITCH’S ALPHABET, a series set in a Lovecraftian industrial city in an alternate 1950s that centers on a mechanically gifted young girl approaching her 16th birthday, the age at which everyone in her family goes insane, leaving it up to her to unravel the mystery of their madness — and save the world, to Kristin Marino at Delacorte, in a major deal, in a pre-empt, by Rachel Vater at Folio Literary Management (NA).
German rights to Bertelsmann Jugendbuch Verlag, in a good deal, in a pre-empt, by Celeste Fine at Folio Literary Management in association with Peter and Paul Fritz.
Congratulations Caitlin! I can't wait to get my hands on the manuscript (that's a hint, btw)! Gimme gimme!
