Publishers Weekly reports that Wilmington author Rebecca Petruck has sold her second young-adult novel, “Will Nolan Eats Bugs,” to Abrams/Amulet. Publication has been set for fall 2016.
Petruck’s novel follows a boy whose efforts to keep his parents from fighting turn him into the class clown. Will gets in trouble, though, when he does a “hilarious” class presentation on using insects as snacks. (His mom is an entomologist who promotes the use of insects for protein.)
