Hey YABCers! We've got a great cover reveal and giveaway for you today from the awesome Lydia Kang! Her sci-fi novel, CONTROL, will release this year from Penguin. 

But before we get to the awesome cover, here's a message from Lydia:

Hello YABC!

I’m so excited to share the exclusive cover reveal of CONTROL! After a lot of nail biting (not very tasty) and a lot of heart palpitations (got my defribrillator on standby), it’s here! My book is romance and adventure and gene-freaks and science fiction, so I was floored when Danielle Delaney created this perfect cover for CONTROL. I love the colors, the glowiness, the slightly out-of-control title and of course the chemistry. Who knew chemistry could be so romantic?

~ Lydia Kang

 

Now are you ready to see what Lydia's talking about? Get ready for the glowiness!!

Soooooo pretty! I love the colors and of course the glowiness. It really makes the cover come alive. Here's a little about the book:

"Highly recommended" by James Dashner, Control is set in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic "mistakes" that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.

After the violent death of her father, 17 year-old Zelia loses her younger sister, Dylia, during an abduction at a foster care agency. It turns out her sister Dylia isn’t just pretty and sweet—she’s illegal. In the year 2150, DNA must be pure by law, and anyone with enhanced genes face death. Zelia’s only allies are the freak-show inhabitants of her new, underground foster home. Along with the unexpected love of a very strange boy, she will need her flaws and their illicit traits to save the only family she has left.

"Control blew me away, from the depth and richness of this fascinating, disturbing vision of the future—and all its technologies—to the twists and turns and suspense that made for a thrilling ride. Zel is as authentic a character as I've read in a very long time. Highly recommended." — James Dashner, NYT Bestselling Author of the Maze Runner Trilogy

 

Sounds incredible! Want to get your hands on it? Enter the giveaway below! 

 

Giveaway Details

One international winner will receive a signed ARC of CONTROL and Zel's necklace.

Two more international winners will receive a necklace swag pack.

Necklace details: The onyx pendant and sterling silver necklace is a replica of the one worn by the main character, Zelia. It helps her survive and is a reminder to just breathe.
