Rebecca Serle, whose debut young adult novel When You Were Mine sold to Simon & Schuster and then Fox 2000 and(500) Days Of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, has just landed a big publishing deal for her second novel creation. It’s an untitled three book series that got a North American publishing deal from Poppy, the imprint from Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. Farrin Jacobs is overseeing the book.
They are keeping the log line under wraps, but I’ve heard it deals with a young actress who gets caught up in romance and the swirl of social media after she is plucked from obscurity to star in a Twilight-like film franchise. The film and TV rights will be shopped by Dan Farah of Farah Films & Management who made the book deal with Serle’s publishing agent Mollie Glick of Foundry Literary + Media. The film adaptation of When You Were Mine has been retitled Rosaline, and is being produced by Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps.
