It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Look Past by Eric Devine + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for LOOK PAST by Eric Devine, releasing October 4, 2016 from Running Press. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Eric:

Hey, YABC! Eric Devine, here, and I’m unbelievably pumped to finally share this cover with you. It took some tweaks to arrive at this image, but I think it was worth the wait.

LOOK PAST is a book that will give you nightmares and break your heart at the same time. It’s the story of Avery Chase, whose first love, Mary Matthison, has been brutally murdered. Afraid to call too much attention to himself while he transitions from female to male, Avery battles with his need to search for the Mary’s killer and his desire to stay on the fringe. That is until the killer starts taunting him with evidence from Mary’s murder. Then he has no choice but to seek what the police seem unable to find. Told you, nightmares.

The heartbreaking part? Yeah, the killer believes Avery is a sinner because he’s transgender. So Avery is forced to choose: denounce his identified gender or never find out who killed Mary. Mhmm. The killer is cold. And this cover does such justice to that sensation. So much has been torn from Avery and still he wants to solve the puzzle, put the pieces back together, for Mary, and for himself.

I hope you pick up a copy. It hits shelves on 10/4. Thanks for having me, YABC!

About the Book
 

Mary is dead—murdered in a brutal way. Avery, a transgender boy who loved Mary but who was shunned by Mary’s very strict Reverend father, can’t just sit on the sidelines while the police, including his own Uncle Tom, handle the case. His interest in forensics takes over, and when he goes to the crime scene, his investigation puts him in harm’s way. The authorities are on edge, trying to decipher who the killer is, and have no time for the outcast teen. Avery must, like the rest of the town, wait for the police to do their job.

However, following Mary’s funeral, Avery receives the first in a series of disturbing texts that can only come from the killer, revealing that Avery is now a target, dead-center in the continuing manhunt. With the entire town caught in the grip of fear, Avery is torn between finding the killer and protecting himself. Soon, though, even hiding and hoping is taken from Avery. The killer, in a disturbing cat and mouse game, toys with Avery’s heart and his identity. If Avery plays along, can he bring Mary’s murderer to justice? Or will sacrificing himself be the ultimate betrayal?

With his characteristic honesty and gift for creating page-turning plots, author Eric Devine explores the depths one must go to in order to see past the superficial and find the truth.

Wow! the cover is so revealing about this book. And, yes, I will have nightmares from this book, but it sounds too exciting and unique NOT to read it!
