Ally Condie Lands Deal for Two New Novels

Matched trilogy author Ally Condie has inked a deal to publish two new novels with Dutton Children’s Books. The Penguin Young Readers Group imprint will release the first book in fall 2014.

Writers House agent Jodi Reamer  negotiated the deal for North American rights with publisher Julie Strauss-Gabel. Strauss-Gabel will  also edit the books. Here’s more about the book, from the release:

[The book] tells the story of Rio, who has waited her whole life for the opportunity to leave her safe, underwater city of Atlantia for life on the surface. But when her twin sister, Bay, shocks everyone and chooses Above first (only one family member may go), Rio is left with increasingly dangerous questions about the complex political and religious system constructed to govern the fragile divide between land and sea.
