A busy week copy-editing The Hidden Agenda of Sigrid Sugden, to be published in the fall by Fitzhenry & Whiteside.
This is the final book of the three that started with The Nine Lives of Travis Keating back in 2008.
If you’ve read the second book, The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy, you may remember Sigrid as one of the Shrikes, the three girls who bullied Prinny. At the end of the book, Prinny is terrorized by Tate and Mel, and escapes in a dory in the fog. Later, she figures out Sigrid was the one who sent for help.
I always wondered what would happen to Sigrid when Tate and Mel found out she made the phone call that got them into big trouble…
Like the other two books, Hidden Agenda is set on Newfoundland’s northern peninsula.
