We are thrilled to announce that rights to FINDING AMMI by activist and author Ruchira Gupta, (I Kick and I Fly) have been acquired by Sam Palazzi at Scholastic! 

Publication is slated for Summer 2025. 

FINDING AMMI is a timely and nail-biting MG adventure about going the distance for the ones you love. After her family is torn apart by political shifts in both India and the United States, one girl must battle discrimination in both countries in order to track down her mother and make her family whole again.

Samantha Haywood and Laura Cameron at Transatlantic Agency negotiated the deal for world rights.

Ruchira Gupta is a writer, feminist campaigner, professor at New York University and founder of the anti-sex-trafficking organization, Apne Aap Women Worldwide. She won the Clinton Global Citizen award in 2009, the Sera Bangali Award in 2012 and an Emmy for outstanding investigative journalism in 1996. She has helped more than twenty thousand girls and women in India exit prostitution systems. She has also edited As If Women Matter, an anthology of Gloria Steinem’s essays, and written manuals on human trafficking for the UN Office for Drugs and Crime. Ruchira divides her time between Delhi and New York.

Congratulations Ruchira!
