Jamie Sumner is happy to announce her two-book deal with Atheneum/Simon & Schuster following her debut middle grade novel, Roll With It, in October of 2019.

From Publishers Weekly: “Reka Simonsen at Atheneum has bought two middle grade novels by Jamie Sumner. The Survival Playlist is the story of 12-year-old Lou Montgomery, a talented singer with a flighty, fame-hungry mother and an undiagnosed sensory processing disorder that makes performing nearly unbearable. Publication is scheduled for fall 2020, with a second, untitled novel to follow in fall 2021.”
