Executive editor Emily Meehan negotiated the deal with literary agent Jennifer Rudolph Walsh from William Morris Endeavor Entertainment.
Cohn (pictured, via) has written several popular children’s books, including the Cyd Charisse series. She also collaborated with Scholastic editor David Levithan on several titles, including Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
Here’s more from the press release: “The series is set in the island paradise of the Annex, the most exclusive playground on earth. Bioengineered to tropical perfection, it costs a fortune to get there and even more to stay…Two teenage girls—one a human clone and the other the human girl from whom the clone was duplicated—are both stranded in the Annex, and are in love with the same guy.”
