Jacquetta Nammar Feldman Sells MG Novel

Congratulations to Austin SCBWI member Jacquetta Nammar Feldman on selling her debut middle grade novel to HarperCollins. Here’s the recent announcement from Publishers Weekly:

Antonia Markiet and Megan Ilnitzki at HarperCollins have preempted Jacquetta Nammar Feldman’s debut middle grade novel, Wishing Upon the Same Stars. The novel follows a seventh-grade Arab-American girl whose notions of home and heritage are redefined after moving to Texas and becoming best friends with the Jewish Israeli girl next door. Publication is slated for winter 2022; Peter Knapp at Park & Fine Literary and Media did the two-book deal for world English rights.
