I can officially announce that I sold my next book! THE FIRST TO KNOW is a Contemporary YA and it will be releasing in Fall 2017 from Harlequin Teen. I could not be happier to be working on this book with Natashya Wilson and the amazing team at Harlequin Teen again. Here’s the official deal announcement from Publishers Marketplace:

Abigail Johnson’s THE FIRST TO KNOW, about a girl whose gift to her father — a DNA mail-in kit — leads her to a half-brother she never knew she had, to Natashya Wilson at Harlequin Teen, for publication in Fall 2017, by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds(World).

What else can I tell you about THE FIRST TO KNOW?

  • It is a standalone Contemporary YA
  • It is NOT connected to IF I FIX YOU, but if you liked my first book, I think you’re really going to like THE FIRST TO KNOW
  • It is set in Arizona
  • It’s set for publication in Fall 2017
  • This song: 

I can’t wait for all of you to read it! Make sure you’re subscribed to my blog and follow me on social media so you don’t miss all the book details including the full description, cover reveal, and future giveaways.

About Abigail

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend. She is represented by Kim Lionetti at BookEnds Literary Agency.
