Atom editorial director Sam Smith acquired world rights in the two-book deal from Karolina Sutton at Curtis Brown.
The first title, Adorkable, will be published in spring 2012. According to the publisher, Adorkable, meaning “dorky yet strangely adorable” is a “witty, wry look at a how one girl can have half a million followers on Twitter and still feel lonely”.
Smith said:"Sarra Manning is a genius at capturing those amazing, awkward teen years in a wonderfully relatable, authentic way . . . Adorkable is absolutely one of those stand-out books that's doesn't only speak to teen girls but to the inner dork in all of us!"
