THE LEADING EDGE OF NOW cover!
In case you missed it, the cover for my newest dramedy, The Leading Edge of Now, was revealed earlier this afternoon over on YA Books Central! They're also hosting an ARC giveaway, so head on over and check it out!
While I have your eyeballs, though, LOOK AT THE COVER:
I’m in love with the cover art, which somehow manages to be evocative and affecting and stunning, all at once. And the tagline. HOLY TAGLINE, BATMAN. It's so perfect, so timely.
How is it perfect and timely, you ask?
Okay, so you didn't ask, but I'm going to tell you anyway, by giving you a short summary of the story:
Just when Grace is beginning to get used to being an orphan, her estranged uncle suddenly comes forward to claim her. That might be okay if he’d spoken to her even once since her father died. Or if moving in with Uncle Rusty didn’t mean returning to New Harbor.
Grace once spent the best summers of her life in New Harbor. Now the place just reminds her of all she’s lost: her best friend, her boyfriend, and any memory of the night that changed her forever.
People say the truth will set you free, but Grace isn’t sure about that. Because once she starts looking for it, the truth about that night is hard to find. And what happens when her healing hurts the people she cares about the most?
Marci Lyn Curtis, the critically acclaimed author of The One Thing (Disney-Hyperion, 2015), has crafted an honest and emotional story that will resonate with the wide range of readers impacted by sexual assault.
Sexual assault does not define this story, however, just as it does not define Grace. Wry humor and true love come along for the ride as Grace, like many in the #metoo era, seeks to find her truth, face her truth, and speak her truth.
Thank you for sharing this special day with me, and don't forget to head over to YA Books Central to find out more about The Leading Edge of Now, and to enter the ARC giveaway!
