So you might remember that back in December I posted that my crit partner Kristi Helvig had sold her book, BURN OUT to Egmont? Well, today, I'm SO thrilled that I get to share with you the seriously freaking amazing cover! And since I know that's what you really want to see, here it is:
And here's the blurb:
Most people want to save the world; seventeen-year-old Tora Reynolds just wants to get the hell off of it. One of the last survivors in Earth's final years, Tora yearns to escape the wasteland her planet has become after the sun turns "red giant," but discovers her fellow survivors are even deadlier than the hostile environment.
You guys! You have no idea how perfect this cover is for this book. Seriously. It's like they pulled it right out of my brain while I was reading BURN OUT. I have known BURN OUT since it was a tiny book baby, and I'm so excited for it to go out into the world and into your hands! There's nothing like it out there right now. Tora is a kickass heroine and I can't wait for you all to meet her. I know you'll love her as much as I do.
BURN OUT releases April 8, 2014. Did I mention you can pre-order it on Amazon right now?You can also add it on goodreads.
And, that's not all! To celebrate BURN OUT's cover reveal, Kristi is having a giveaway! One winner, will get a finished copy of DEFY THE DARK, (featuring a story by yours truly) and a YA book of their choice!
