Atheneum Re-ups Rhodes-Courter
At Simon & Schuster’s Atheneum Books imprint, Caitlin Dlouhy bought North American rights to the sequel to Ashley Rhodes-Courter’s 2008 memoir, Three Little Words. That book, about the author’s experiences coming up through the foster-care system, was also published by Atheneum and is being adapted into a same-titled movie set for a 2014 release. The new book, Three More Words, follows the author’s life into her late teens and early 20s. (Rhodes-Courter is now 27.) S&S said Three More Words will be published when the film comes out and marketed as both a YA and adult title. Agent Joelle Delbourgo, president of Joelle Delbourgo Associates, brokered the sale.
