Master Cat Jessica Brody just sold a new series to Simon Pulse, co-written with her BFF Joanne Rendell. It’s a retelling of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, set on another planet — or as Jessica likes to say, “Les Mis in Space!” The sci-fi novels are set on the French planet-colony Laterre, where the fates of three teens from very different backgrounds intertwine among the looming threat of revolution. A Sky Without Stars and Between Burning Worlds are the first two books in the System Divine series. Publication is slated for spring 2019 and spring 2020. Congrats to Jessica and Joanne!
