It's Live!! Cover Reveal: A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for A TAXONOMY OF LOVE by Rachael Allen, releasing January 9, 2018 from Amulet/Abrams. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Rachael:

Hey YABC! I am so, so excited to share the cover for A TAXONOMY OF LOVE with y’all. It’s been really wonderful working with my editor, Erica Finkel, and everyone at Amulet/Abrams, and also Abrams got its start publishing art books, so when I heard my cover was coming, I expected there to be pretty. I didn’t expect this level of jaw-dropping amazingness. (If I’m really being honest, I still pull out my phone on occasion and look at my cover and giggle with glee.) I’m so grateful to everyone involved, particularly Libby VanderPloeg, the cover designer, who is so talented, it almost breaks my brain. I love the colors and the font. I love how the cover so perfectly matches the topic of the book. I love how there’s a choice: fall in or fall out. But most of all, I am a GIANT nerd, so I love that even though the brain is an aesthetic rendering, you can still pick out the parts and they're in the right place (Well, hello, there, cute little magenta cerebellum!), and I just love the cover artist for that and am sending her a big, nerdy high five.

A TAXONOMY OF LOVE

By: Rachael Allen
Release date: January 9, 2018
Publisher: Amulet/Abrams
ISBN: 9781419725418
 
About the Book

Spencer is used to being the weird one, the not-quite-right one, the alone one. Between having Tourette’s Syndrome and a perfect-at-everything older brother, it’s just the way things are. But the moment Hope steps out of the moving van the summer before seventh grade, Spencer feels different.

Like his neighborhood is an entirely different place, now that he has a friend to climb trees and plan world travels with.

Like he could tell Hope anything – maybe even everything.

Like he finally belongs.

And then they grow up. Life gets messier, and clear labels like “friend” get messier still. Through six years of sibling feuds and family tragedies, new relationships and broken hearts, the two grow together and apart, and Spencer, an aspiring scientist, tries to map it all out using his normally-trustworthy system of taxonomy. But unlike science, love doesn’t always fit into easy-to-manage boxes. And if Spencer can’t figure things out soon, he risks losing Hope completely.

Through prose, letters, chats, texts, a sparkling voice, and a dash of science, Rachael Allen explores the many forms and facets of love, from the messy and heartbreaking to the wondrously beautiful.

I think the cover is a bit sentimental, but the book sounds like it could be interesting!

Love the cover! It looks like a dichotomous key that we used in science. The synopsis is cute and makes me think of teen love.
