Whitney Leopard at Random House Graphic has acquired Jose Pimienta’s debut middle-grade contemporary graphic novel Twin Cities in an exclusive submission. Twins Luis Fernando and Luisa Teresa have always been together, but when Luisa gets an opportunity to go to a different school across the border from their Mexican town, these twins will suddenly find themselves having to face school alone for the first time. A heartfelt, timely journey filled with family, cultural clashes, and the truth about what it means to be a twin, and how that changes when you’re no longer together. Publication is planned for 2022; Elizabeth Bennett at the Transatlantic Agency sold World rights.
