Cover Reveal: NEARLY GONE by Elle Cosimano + Giveaway (US Only)

Cover Reveal: NEARLY GONE by Elle Cosimano + Giveaway (US Only)

What's that? Another cover reveal? 

Oh yeah, baby. 

Today we'll be showing you the cover to Elle Cosimano's NEARLY GONE, coming to you March 2014 from Kathy Dawson Books/Penguin. 

Before we get to the goods, here's a message from Elle:

 

Shhhh… come close. I’m going to tell you a secret. No, closer. There are things I can’t tell you here. Things you shouldn’t know yet. But I will tell you this… No one in this story is who they seem, or what they seem. And that’s why finding the perfect cover for NEARLY GONE was such a challenge! How do you evoke the taste of fear, danger, and darkness, yet keep the surprises hidden in the pages? How do you hint at the mystery without giving too much away? Artist Greg Stadnyk and the team at Kathy Dawson Books figured it out with this deliciously creepy and intense cover design. I knew it was right the minute I saw it. The sweat on her lip, the smudge on her cheek, the numbers in the… wait… I’ve already said too much. You’ll have to figure out the rest of the mystery on your own. But be careful. And remember, you can’t trust anyone.

~ Elle Cosimano

I don't know about you, but I'm dying to know what the numbers are all about. I love the A turned into a backwards 4. This one is definitely creepy and intense! 

What do you guys think? 
 

Here's more about the book:

“Smart, scary, and beautifully written. With a heart-pounding romance and a heart-stopping plot, NEARLY GONE is a thrill-ride of a book. An amazing debut that kept me on the edge of my seat to the very last page!”  -- Megan Miranda, author of FRACTURE and HYSTERIA.

“NEARLY GONE is fast-paced, smart, and keeps you guessing till the end. Start this book with a clear schedule because you won't be able to put it down!" -- Kim Harrington, author of THE DEAD AND BURIED and FORGET ME.

“NEARLY GONE is a smart, gripping thriller about a clever girl from the trailer park, a boy from the wrong side of the law, and a killer who kept me guessing. This chilling murder mystery left me racing to the finish and biting my nails every step of the way.” –Megan Shepherd, author of THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER
 

Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.
