A YA novel called Bras and Broomsticks, described as a mix of Harry Potter and Bridget Jones, and centering on a high school girl who can't make her magic work properly, was preempted at Random Books for Young Readers by executive editor Wendy Loggia. She paid six figures for two books to author Sarah Mlynowski, already published as an adult author at Red Dress Ink, with more to come. Agent Laura Dail negotiated the North American deal.
