Congrats, Kody!!

Aside from being awesome, Kody Keplinger is the author of this book:

Today the blogosphere is buzzing about some great news for Kody: she just sold another book to Poppy!!! 

*throws confetti* 

*eats cake on her behalf* *lots of it*

Here's the official announcement from Publishers Marketplace:

Nineteen-year-old Duff author Kody Keplinger's LUSTSTRUCK, a contemporary reimagining of the Greek play "Lysistrata," that explores the issues of teen sexuality as high school senior Lissa decides it's time to end her school's ridiculous sports rivalry once and for all with a hook-up strike, to Kate Sullivan at Poppy, for publication in Fall 2011, by Joanna Volpe at Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation (World).

Reimaginings of Greek plays? Hook-up strikes? 

I am so there.

So here's to Kody and her awesomeness. Fall 2011 can't get here soon enough :D


  1. Hee hee. She comes up with the best contemporary concepts! Sounds like another home run! (Sorry. Strikes. Home run... I guess I'm a little off with my sports analogies.)

  2. Oh no. Yet another awesome sounding book to weigh down my TBR pile. LOL. Now I just have to wait till it's released. Sniff. :)

    Yay for Kody!
