    Alyson Heller at Aladdin has acquired Sleepaway, the debut middle-grade novel by former neuroscientist and Lambda Literary fellow Naseem Jamnia, developed by Upswell Media, pitched as Ellen Oh's Spirit Hunters meets Katherine Arden's Small Spaces. Pina's first trip to summer camp is a chance to escape her overbearing parents, but Camp Clear Skies hides a secret— a clearing in the deep woods the older kids call "the Glade," which offers campers the ability to make their dreams come true, as well as their nightmares. Publication is set for winter 2025.
