RUBY FINLEY VS. THE INTERSTELLAR INVASION
A fun and energetic mystery-adventure about an aspiring entomologist who must save her neighborhood from an intergalactic insect! Macmillan/FSG won the book at auction and will be publishing in September 2022.
Eleven-year-old Ruby is a Black girl who loves studying insects and would do just about anything to be an entomologist, much to the grossed-out dismay of her Gramma. Ruby knows everything there is to know about insects so when she finds the weirdest bug she's ever seen in her front yard, she makes sure no one is looking and captures it for further study.
But then Ruby realizes that the creature isn't just a regular bug. And it has promptly burned a hole through her window and disappeared. Soon, random things around the neighborhood go missing, and no one's heard from the old lady down the street for a week. Ruby and her friends will have to recover the strange bug before the feds do.
Ruby is the science hero we've all been waiting for!
"I inhaled this book in half a day and LOVED every moment! Amazing scientist heroine, alien bug, adventures—this book has it all.”
- Yoon Ha Lee, author of Dragon Pearl
