Two books for the far-future TBR.

 Dumplin', by Julie Murphy

Dumplin', by Julie Murphy

From Publishers Marketplace, two deals that have me interested:

Debut author Lisa Bunker's FELIX YZ, pitched as a 21st-century LGBTQ-positive WRINKLE IN TIME, which takes the form of blog entries written by a boy accidentally fused with a fourth-dimensional being, set during the last month before an experimental procedure which will either separate them or kill them both, to Alex Ulyett and Ken Wright at Viking Children's, in a pre-empt, for publication in Summer 2017, by Brianne Johnson at Writers House (NA).


And also:

Julie Murphy's companion novel to her NYT bestselling DUMPLIN', following the same cast of characters after Willowdean's pageant win, to Alessandra Balzer at Balzer & Bray, by Molly Jaffa at Folio Literary Management (World English).


(SPOILER: Except... didn't Willowdean get disqualified? Am I remembering that totally wrong? GUESS IT'S TIME FOR A RE-READ.)
