As we enter the fourth month of 2014, many of the OneFour Kidlitters are looking beyond our debuts to what’s next on the horizon. With that in mind, we now have a new monthly feature to spotlight all that “Next Book” news. Much like our 14th posts, we’ll share covers, reviews, sales, titles, and the like! So check back every month to see what’s next!

And Lisa Maxwell has exciting news!
Sara Sargent has also acquired, in a pre-empt, Heartless Things and an untitled YA novel by Lisa Maxwell.
