The Trouble With Robots
Plaintext version: Jonah Heller at Peachtree has bought The Trouble with Robots, a contemporary middle grade novel from debut author Michelle Mohrweis. Sparks fly when perfectionist Evelyn and "couldn't care less" Allie are thrust together in a metal screeching robotics competition. Together, the girls must find common ground while battling grief and feelings of otherness. Publication is planned for fall 2022; Emily Forney at BookEnds Literary Agency brokered the deal for world rights.
