It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: That Night by Amy Giles + Giveaway (Intl)
Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THAT NIGHT by Amy Giles, releasing October 23, 2018 from Harper Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Amy:
Hi, YABCers! I’m so excited to finally share the cover for That Night with you.
No lie, this was love at first sight.
That Night addresses a serious topic, so it was important to strike the right balance on the cover, one that conveys the seriousness of the subject matter but hints at hope and love. The amazingly talented Katie Fitch once again designed the cover for That Night. We wanted the jacket to have a similar moody/photographic and realistic direction as Now Is Everything. I think Katie found a great image and treatment that’s dramatic but also presents Jess and Lucas as united in the face of tragedy.
There’s something so vulnerable yet brave about their pose, the slight inward toes of Jess. The way they’re holding on to each other, ready to take on the future together. The elongated shadows that evoke the tragedy that looms over their lives. They’re little details, but I feel it captures the two of them trying to work this out together. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Ready to see?
Scroll, YABCers! Scroll!
Here it is!

Release Date: October 23, 2018
One night in March, a terrible tragedy shakes the Queens neighborhood where Jessica Nolan and Lucas Rossi live.
The year since the shooting has played out differently for Jess and Lucas, both of whom were affected by that night in eerily similar, and deeply personal, ways. Lucas has taken up boxing and lives under the ever-watchful eye of his overprotective parents, while trying to put good into the world through random acts of kindness—to pay back a debt he feels he owes the universe for taking the wrong brother.
Jess struggles to take care of her depressed mother, with the help of her elderly next-door neighbor, and tries to make ends meet. Without her best friend, who’s across the country at a special post-trauma boarding school, and her brother, who died that night, Jess feels totally alone in the world.
When Jess and Lucas's paths cross at their shared after-school job, they start to become friends…and then more.
Their community—and their families—were irrevocably changed by a senseless act of violence. But as Jess and Lucas fall in love, they'll learn to help each other heal and move forward—together.
That Night is an emotional and ultimately hopeful story about tragedy, love, and learning to heal.

What do you think about the cover and synopsis?
I loved Giles debut, and am excited about this one. I trust that Giles will deliver something heart wrenching, but also hopeful.
The cover of the book is beautiful and I am looking forward to the story of Jess and Lucas. I believe that Amy Giles would deliver a heart-wrenching, beautiful story and I can't wait to read it ?
This is one of those cover where I pick up a book without reading the blurb and dive in. It''s so me. And the synopsys! OMG, yes, please!
I'm glad the cover design is simple. The thematic content is more than substantial enough to draw this reader, and no further distractions from that is necessary. Thanks!-- Kara S
I've read all the previous books of this author and I'm excited about this new one. The cover is gorgeous and I like the synopsis.
The cover is simple and warm and I like that the image shows just half of their body.. The synopsis, though not in the same context, but everyone if us has experienced it, the loss of some one or something we love and the struggle to keep ourselves from falling. So I think everyone can relate, it's the twist and turn that's intriguing..
