Ally Carter Lands Deal for New YA Series

Young adult novelist Ally Carter has signed a deal with Scholastic for the Embassy Row trilogy. Carter is the author of the Heist Society and Gallagher Girls series.

The publisher plans to release the first installment in 2015. Publisher David Levithan negotiated the agreement with Nelson Literary Agency president Kristin Nelson. Here’s more from the release:

This exciting new series focuses on Grace, who can best be described as a daredevil, an Army brat, and a rebel. She is also the only granddaughter of perhaps the most powerful ambassador in the world, and Grace has spent every summer of her childhood running across the roofs of Embassy Row. Now, at age sixteen, she’s come back to stay— in order to solve the mystery of her mother’s death.
