Belle Bridge Books is going to publish my middle school novel, What I Learned About Being a Cheerleader.

Reported in today's Deal News:
Adrianne Ambrose's WHAT I LEARNED ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER, the humorous, endearing diary of a middle school geek who wins a spot as a cheerleader that changes her life, to Debra Dixon at Bell Bridge Books, in a nice deal, for publication in July 2010 (World).

If all goes smoothly, it looks like the fabulous Ted Naifeh will be illustrating the cover.
Here's a little Ted art to keep you happy:
