Cover Reveal: 45 Pounds (more or less) + Giveaway! (US Only)
Today we have the pleasure of hosting a terrific cover reveal for 45 POUNDS (MORE OR LESS) by K.A. Barson!
Before we get to the big reveal, here is a message from Kelly:
Hey, YABC! Thanks for joining me for the exclusive cover reveal for my debut YA novel, 45 POUNDS (MORE OR LESS). While neither my main character Ann nor I are unbelievably gorgeous, I think the cover of my book is. The design team at Viking took care with each and every detail, right down to a spectacular font. Feel free to “ooh” and “ah” and even laugh a little, because that’s actually the look we were going for. You can find out more about Ann, the book, and me—including future giveaways—by checking out my website, www.kabarson.com or the Class of 2k13’s site, www.classof2k13.com.

And now on with the show!
Here are the numbers of Ann Galardi’s life:
She is 16.
And a size 17.
Her perfect mother is a size 6.
Her Aunt Jackie is getting married in 10 weeks, and wants Ann to be her bridesmaid.
So Ann makes up her mind: Time to lose 45 pounds (more or less) in 2 ½ months.
Welcome to the world of informercial diet plans, wedding dance lessons, embarrassing run-ins with the cutest guy Ann’s ever seen—-and some surprises about her NOT-so-perfect mother.
And there’s one more thing. It’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin-—no matter how you add it up!
What a perfect-sounding contemporary! I'm looking forward to adding this one to my YA Contemporary TBR list. I can't seem to get enough of them!
In honor of this reveal, Kelly is generously providing one signed (and/or personalized) ARC to one lucky US winner. Enter using the form below! Good luck!
