Stacey Friedberg at Dial has acquired Charlotte Salter's middle grade novel, tentatively titled Granmos.
Kestrel lives in a forest that is crawling with dangerous beasts, and her powerful spell-casting mother has tasked her with hunting them down. But as her own personal monster gets closer and closer to attacking and eating her, Kestrel learns that nothing in this forest is what it seems – including her mother's true motivations.
Publication is scheduled for spring 2018; Allison Hellegers of Rights People brokered world English rights on behalf of Kirsty McLachlan at DGA.
