Farrar, Straus & Giroux Acquires Adrianna Cuevas Debut MG Novel

Trisha de Guzman at FSG has acquired world rights to Adrianna Cuevas’s debut middle grade novel, Nestor’s Guide to Unpacking, about a Cuban-American boy named Nestor with a secret ability to speak to animals. Nestor and his mother move to New Haven, Texas, while his father is deployed in Afghanistan, where he must use his ability when the town is threatened by a tule vieja, a witch that transforms into animals. Publication is set for spring 2020; Stefanie Sanchez Von Borstel at Full Circle Literary did the deal. Congratulations Adrianna!
