It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Gallery Of Unfinished Girls (Lauren Karcz) + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE GALLERY OF UNFINISHED GIRLS by Lauren Karcz, releasing July 25, 2017 from Harper Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Lauren:

Hi YABC readers! I'm thrilled to be sharing with you the cover of my debut novel, THE GALLERY OF UNFINISHED GIRLS. This novel has been in the works for so long, starting its life as a contemporary romance, and then becoming something more surrealist as I rewrote it. I couldn't imagine what the design team at HarperTeen would come up with! I love how the cover hints at both the real-world (Florida) setting and some of the magical elements. The background in particular looks like something that my artist protagonist, Mercedes, might have dreamed up herself. And a Google search for similar book covers led me to a very cool Alice in Wonderland reissue that may have inspired my designer; intended or not, the Wonderland connection totally fits with my book!

I hope you enjoy the cover as much as I do!

~Lauren~

The Gallery Of Unfinished Girls

by Lauren Karcz

Release date: July 25, 2017

Publisher: Harper Teen

ISBN: 0062467778

 

About the Book

Mercedes Moreno is an artist. At least, she thinks she could be, even though she hasn't been able to paint anything worthwhile since her award-winning piece Food Poisoning #1 last year.

Her lack of inspiration might be because her abuela is lying comatose in faraway Puerto Rico after suffering a stroke. Or the fact that Mercedes is in love with her best friend, Victoria, but is too afraid to admit her true feelings.

Despite Mercedes’s creative block, art starts to show up in unexpected ways. A piano appears on her front lawn one morning, and a mysterious new neighbor invites Mercedes to paint with her at the Red Mangrove Estate.

At the Estate, Mercedes can create in ways she never has before. She can share her deepest secrets and feel safe. But Mercedes can't take anything out of the Estate, including her new-found clarity. As her life continues to crumble around her, the Estate offers more solace than she could hope for. But Mercedes can’t live both lives forever, and ultimately she must choose between this perfect world of art and truth and a much messier reality.

The cover is so pretty and the synopsis sounds really cool. I love reading about how people overcome these big obstacles because it just makes the story seem so much more realistic.

I love the flamingos on the cover and it totally makes me think of Alice in Wonderland too! I'm really interested to see what the connection is!

The cover is amazing! I like the color contrast a lot. I love anything artsy/anything having to do with art. When a book and art intertwines with each other I feel pulled in and I think this book would pull me in. Not only that, It seemed like an amazing book to begin with (just by reading the synopsis).

I'm not sure how the cover goes with this book--pink flamingos remind me of the plastic ones people put on lawns for birthday gags. But the synopsis is exciting--I love internal conflict in books. I have a daughter who is a talented artist and creates in many different medias, so getting into the head of an artist sounds like fun.

It is an interesting cover, not quite sure how it fits into the book, but nonetheless looks like a great book.
