It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE DISAPPEARANCES by Emily Bain Murphy, releasing July 4, 2017 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Emily:

The idea for THE DISAPPEARANCES began when I imagined magic as a glittering dust I could hold in the palm of my hand. I started thinking: what if this magic somehow illuminated some of the wonder and beauty that already exist in our own world? And what if those things then systematically started to disappear?

I think the cover designer did such an amazing job capturing the atmospheric tone of THE DISAPPEARANCES. I get the most lovely sense of melancholy, mystery, and magic from it. And that is really what the heart of Aila's story is about--what it means to find beauty, hope, and magic in the world even after losing someone to death, the most formidable Disappearance of all.

I couldn't be more excited to share the cover reveal with you today, and I hope that you love it as much as I do!

THE DISAPPEARANCES

by Emily Bain Murphy
Release date: July 4, 2017
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
ISBN: 9780544879362
 
About the Book

Every seven years something disappears in the town of Sterling: reflections, dreams, colors, stars. When Aila Quinn arrives, she realizes why her deceased mother, Juliet, never spoke of growing up there—the town is cursed to lose the experiences that weave life together, and the theory is that Juliet is to blame.

Aila sets out to clear her mother’s name with the help of George, whose goofy charm makes him a fast friend; Beas, the enigmatic violinist who writes poetry on her

knees; and William, whose pull on Aila’s heart terrifies her.

The Disappearances is a bewitching tale full of intrigue, beauty, and dread that will leave you entranced.
