It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: Scars Like Wings by Erin Stewart + Giveaway (US Only)

Scars-Like-Wings-FINAL-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

SCARS LIKE WINGS by Erin Stewart,

releasing October 1, 2019 from Delacorte Press!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

This cover gives me all the feels. The artist, Jennifer Heuer, worked so hard to create an image that would give a sense of hopefulness even though the book’s main character, Ava, has lost so much in her life. I think she nailed it!

You’ll have to read the book to find out the significance of the pink wig, but for me, this cover gives a sense of empowerment in the face of pain. The fact is, we all have scars. We may not be able to fix them, but we can be stronger together and wear our scars like wings. 

~Erin

Scars Like Wings 
 By: Erin Stewart

Release date: October 1, 2019

Publisher: Delacorte Press

About the Book

“Before, I had a place.

I was a daughter. A friend. A singer.

I was a million things.

Now I’m only one—

the Burned Girl.”


Ava Lee has lost everything there is to lose. Her parents. Her best friend. Her home. Even her face. She doesn’t need a mirror to know what she looks like—she can see her reflection in the eyes of everyone around her.

A year after the fire that destroyed her world, her aunt and uncle have decided she should go back to high school. Be “normal” again. Whatever that is.

Ava knows better. There is no normal for someone like her. And forget making friends—no one wants to be seen with the Burned Girl, now or ever.

But when Ava meets a fellow survivor named Piper, she begins to feel like maybe she doesn’t have to face the nightmare alone. Sarcastic and blunt, Piper isn’t afraid to push Ava out of her comfort zone. Piper introduces Ava to Asad, a boy who loves theater just as much as she does—and slowly Ava tries to create a life again.

Yet Piper is fighting her own battle, and soon Ava must decide if she’s going to fade back into her scars . . . or let the people by her side help her fly.

Amazing cover. Captures the deep emotional impact of the novel's description. Can't even imagine what that kind of survival requires of a person's soul. Can't wait to read it, Erin! Congrats!

So rafflecopter told me to comment about my best tips for an entrepreneur (?), which I guess would be think it through and don’t give up.

But to answer what I think of this book’s cover and synopsis- I think they seems awesome! The pink wig is graphic and attention-getting, and the fact that is also looks like wings is perfect with the title! And the summary of the book is compelling- I am excited to read it!

The colors of the cover are eye-catching and the art makes me want to know why this character doesn't have a face. So I say the cover perfectly matches this emotional and exciting synopsis.
