Monica, co-sovereign of this Tumblr, sealed a two-book deal yesterday with a UK publishing house. First up in her young-adult series: “Stray,” about a teenage girl raised in the Path — a virtual reality experiment designed to replicate perfect childhoods — who learns that members of the program’s first graduating class are mysteriously dying at 19. (Tantalizing even in blurb form!)
Anyway, you heard it here first. Step aside, J.K. And here’s a Monica primer: On the Oscars, on 9/11, on American Girls, on a missing daughter, on the royal wedding. She also has a live chat today at 2 p.m. — Dan Zak
