My YA Debut!

This story… If I didn’t post, tweet, or blog about it, I squeezed it into this book. ‪#‎sayhername‬ ‪#‎blackgirlmagic‬ (literally) ‪#‎HaitiLovesDetroit‬ ‪#‎HaitiLovesFlint‬ ‪#‎HaitiLovesNOLA‬

From Publisher’s Weekly:

Alessandra Balzer at HarperCollins/Balzer + Bray has preempted author Ibi Zoboi’s YA debut, American Street. Infused with magical realism and the author’s own experiences, this coming-of-age story follows a Haitian immigrant girl thrust into the world of Detroit’s west side; as Fabiola struggles to get her mother out of a U.S. detention center she’s forced to confront the true meaning of family and home, even as she falls in love. Publication is slated for winter 2017; Josh Bank and Hayley Wagreich at Alloy Entertainment negotiated the two-book deal for world English rights.
