Adrianna Cuevas Announces “More Tonteria” With New MG Book Deal

Austin member Adrianna Cuevas recently shared the good news, announced in Publisher’s Weekly, on twitter: “Trisha de Guzman at FSG has bought, in an exclusive submission, world rights to The Ghosts of Rancho Espanto and an untitled middle grade novel by Adrianna Cuevas (The Total Eclipse of Nestor LopezCuba in My Pocket), about a Cuban American boy who is sent to work on a ranch as punishment for a school prank gone wrong, where he’s confronted with an inexplicable mystery that reveals his greatest fears and forces him to rely on unexpected allies. Publication is set for winter 2023.”

Says Adrianna: “I hope y’all are ready for more tonteria. The Ghosts of Rancho Espanto is the most fun I’ve had writing in a long time. I can’t wait for everyone to meet my latest Cuban disaster, Rafa Alvarez – a slushie machine thief with strong snack food opinions.” Congrats, Adrianna!
