Here’s the announcement as it ran in Publishers Weekly Deals:
Brezenoff Explores ‘Real Life’ at Balzer + Bray
Agent Edward Necarsulmer IV at McIntosh and Otis closed a North American rights, two-book, deal for YA author Steve Brezenoff (Brooklyn, Burning) with Jordan Brown at HarperCollins’s Balzer + Bray imprint. The deal is for a love story called Guy In Real Life that follows, as Necarsulmer put it, “two teenage gamers who find each other just when the roles they play in their real lives threaten to break them.” The book is tentatively slated for summer 2014.
