It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Truthers by Geoffrey Girard + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for TRUTHERS by Geoffrey Girard, releasing August 1, 2017, from Carolrhoda Books. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Geoffrey:

Hi YABC!! I'm Geoffrey Girard, author of TRUTHERS coming August 1 from Carolrhoda Books. I’m thrilled to finally share the cover for TRUTHERS with you today. I’ve had it for months but wasn’t allowed to reveal until today: Here’s the first official look!

TRUTHERS is a thriller set in 2017 about the 9/11 attacks sixteen years ago and all the conspiracy business that’s followed it (and just about everything else in the news these days) since as teen Katie Wallace navigates that day’s complex and cloudy history to save her father and herself. Not an easy topic. I teach high school English and wrote the book for my students as an introduction to that fateful day and to the importance, and dangers, of finding “truth” in a world where that seems to get harder and harder.

I’d hoped for a cover that was direct, powerful, and memorable and I think the creative folk at Carolrhoda Books did just that. While most of my current students weren’t alive for 9/11, for those of us who remember that day, there are few images more powerful than seeing the two towers again. The book tries to take an unflinching look at 9/11 and I’m hopeful the cover gives the right blend of respect and sincerity the writing within is aiming for. Hope you all like it too.

Thanks very much for giving TRUTHERS a look. Be sure to sign up for the $50 giveaway, ARCs, etc. below. Happy summer reading, everyone!

~ Geoffrey

About the Book

Katie Wallace has never given much thought to 9/11. She was only a year old when terrorists struck American soil. But now her father has landed in a mental institution after claiming to know what really happened –  that the attacks were part of a government conspiracy. And, worse, he claims Katie is living proof: the lone survivor of a massive cover-up.

Hoping to free her dad, and discover her own past, Katie sets out to investigate his claims and must navigate the clouded and secretive world of 9/11 conspiracy theorists known as “Truthers.” With the help of close friends and new allies, she wades through a dangerous web of fact and fiction, questions and distortion. Katie no longer knows what to believe. But she does know she’s being followed – and that someone is determined to stop her search for the truth.


Exploring the roots of our conspiracy-theory culture, the controversy of the 9/11 Truth movement, and the historic records of that fateful day, the speculative and introspective thriller TRUTHERS invites a new generation to learn about 9/11 and, also, the high costs, responsibility, and traps of searching for “truth.”

I am looking forward to reading this book. It comes out the day after my birthday, so guess who has 1 thumbs and is buying herself a gift this year? This girl!
The cover alone is interesting - it makes me feel like the answer is right there in front of me, if only I could turn my head or squint my eyes the right way. I would pull this from a shelf for further inspection.
The synopsis entices - what is the truth? Would we know it if we found it? What does it cost us if we do? Great tease. I'm hooked!

TWO thumbs. This girl has 2 thumbs. Although 1 would be more entertaining for others, I suppose.
