Chelsey Flood Lands Deal for Her YA Novel Debut

Chelsey Flood has signed a deal with Simon & Schuster’s Atheneum Books for Young Readers to publish her debut young adult novel.

The UK division of Simon & Schuster Children’s Books released the hardcover edition of Infinite Sky in February 2013. The US edition is set to come out in May 2014. Atheneum executive editor Namrata Tripathi acquired this title and will edit. Here’s more from the release:

In Infinite Sky, thirteen-year-old Iris has recently been abandoned by her mother, and is left with only her father and her older brother, Sam, to call family. Two months after her mother’s departure, Iris watches a family of gypsies set up an illegal camp in the paddock by her house.  The gypsy boy, Trick, is restless and warm and full of life—he’ll settle when he’s in his grave, he tells Iris—and she feels as though she understands him completely.
