Cover Reveal! LEAD ME BACK HOME by ME!

I can hardly believe it, but today is the day for my very own cover reveal! Before we check out the shiny cover for LEAD ME BACK HOME, how about a tidbit of what it's about?


High school junior Trisha Myles thought her sister loved her, but her sister's suicide note revealed that she'd wished Trisha had never existed. In the aftermath, Trisha abandons her old life to become a social ghost. Not existing is sort of peaceful... until a vicious bully targets her.

She’s saved by Jesse Reagan--the one guy in Hoghfield, Alabama who outranks her as an outcast. Trisha’s desire to live blossoms, but spending time with Jesse is more than she bargained for. After she freaks over the slashes on his arms, he explains he’s cursed--a curse that can only be controlled by blood magic. Trisha thinks he’s insane--especially when he tells her someone has cursed her, too. But when freak accidents almost crush Jesse with a truck and destroy her attempts to reclaim her old life, Trisha knows it’s not just a delusion.


A ritual can free them from their curses, but only if they can shed their guilt and anger. However, if Trisha and Jesse can’t let go, the curse will bleed Jesse dry, and Trisha will lose the person who brought her back to life. 

LEAD ME BACK HOME will be released on October 6th, 2015, by Spencer Hill Press. And now, without further ado, it's time for the reveal!



Ready?


I'm ready!


Here we go!




Pardon me. I'll just be over here squeeing!

Cover Reveal! Carol Riggs's THE BODY INSTITUTE

 
Hello, hello! It's cover reveal day on ye olde blogge! Today, we have a really killer-sounding YA by Carol Riggs. THE BODY INSTITUTE deals with body image in a cool sci-fi setting that reminds me of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse series, but why don't you check it out for yourself?
 
 
 
The Body Institute
Release Date: 09/01/15
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
Meet Morgan Dey, one of the top teen Reducers at The Body Institute.

Thanks to cutting-edge technology, Morgan can temporarily take over another girl’s body, get her in shape, and then return to her own body—leaving her client slimmer, more toned, and feeling great. Only there are a few catches…

For one, Morgan won’t remember what happens in her “Loaner” body. Once she’s done, she won’t recall walks with her new friend Matt, conversations with the super-cute Reducer she’s been text-flirting with, or the uneasy feeling she has that the director of The Body Institute is hiding something. Still, it’s all worth it in the name of science. Until the glitches start…

Suddenly, residual memories from her Loaner are cropping up in Morgan’s mind. She’s feeling less like herself and more like someone else. And when protests from an anti–Body Institute organization threaten her safety, she’ll have to decide if being a Reducer is worth the cost of her body and soul…
