HarperCollins' Balzer + Bray imprint has signed on to publish The Ojja-Wojja: A Teen Horror Mystery or Whatever, You Know? by Magdalene Visaggio and Jenn St-Onge, reports Publisher's Weekly.
"Val Malloy is an autistic kid with two interests: the supernatural and her best friend, Lanie," reads PW's description of the book. "When Val and Lanie accidentally unleash a mysterious entity known as the Ojja-Wojja, transforming their town into a mind-controlled cult, they must team up with other misfits to stop it."
The Ojja-Wojja was sold to the publisher through a six-way auction orchestrated by Charlie Olsen at InkWell Management.
The first volume is scheduled to debut in spring 2021, with a second volume already planned.
