about my next book!
Everyone's been asking what's next. Well, I can finally say!
My next book will be released in Fall 2011, and it's called LUSTSTRUCK. Here's what Publisher's Marketplace has to say about it:
Nineteen-year-old Duff author Kody Keplinger's LUSTSTRUCK, a contemporary reimagining of the Greek play "Lysistrata," that explores the issues of teen sexuality as high school senior Lissa decides it's time to end her school's ridiculous sports rivalry once and for all with a hook-up strike, to Kate Sullivan at Poppy, for publication in Fall 2011, by Joanna Volpe at Nancy Coffey Literary & Media Representation (World).
So, basically, it's about a 17 year old girl who gets together with the girlfriends of a bunch of these boys who partake in the pranks and hazing of a very silly rivalry. Together they all agree to cut their boys off from any sort of naughty activity until the rivalry ends. Humor ensues. But the strike also raises some questions of the "norms" of sexuality.
I read Lysistrata last year and thought "OMG, this would be awesome if it was set in modern times with teenagers." Well, the book turned in a slightly different direction, but "reimagining" is the right word. EEeeeek I can't wait to say more about it, but that's all for now. It's a fun story and I hope ya'll love it when it comes out next year!
As for A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHTMARE, which some of you may have seen up on Goodreads, it'll be out in Spring 2012. Woot!
