Maria E. Andreu Signs with Running Press

Writer Maria E. Andreu has landed a deal for her “largely autobiographical” young adult novel, The Secret Side of Empty.

Perseus’ Running Press imprint will publish The Secret Side of Empty in the spring 2014 season. The Writer’s House literary agency negotiated the deal on Andreu’s behalf.

According to the release, the book “tells the story of ‘M.T.,’ an undocumented teenager living in fear of exposure and deportation. The plot loosely follows the life experiences of the author, who earned her citizenship through the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.” (Image via)
