The publisher acquired the second book in the Heist Society series, Uncommon Criminals–it’s set for a June 21st release. The publisher also acquired the fifth, untitled book in Carter’s Gallagher Girls series–it’s scheduled for a spring 2012 release.

Editorial director Stephanie Lurie negotiated the deal with literary agent Kristin Nelson of the Nelson Literary Agency. Senior editor Catherine Onder will edit the books. Warner Brothers has already optioned Heist Society for a film adaptation. Carter will appear at Leaky Con 2011 in July.
