From Publishers Weekly:

While at Disney Hyperion, Emily Meehan bought, with Britt Rubiano and Christine Collins to edit, Brianna Peppins’s YA debut Briarcliff Prep. At a Historically Black Boarding School inspired by the author’s alma mater Spelman College, freshman Avi navigates a budding romance and dreams of writing for the prestigious school newspaper, while grappling with her sister’s abusive relationship with another student. Publication for the first book is set for fall 2022; Jas Perry at KT Literary negotiated the two-book deal for world rights.
