It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Scourge by Jennifer A. Nielsen + Giveaway (US Only)

It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Scourge by Jennifer A. Nielsen + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE SCOURGE by Jennifer A. Nielsen, releasing August 30, 2016 from Scholastic. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Jennifer:

When you hear a title like, “The Scourge,” I’m guessing your first thought probably isn’t, “I bet this will be a fast-paced adventure story full of mystery, humor, and a touch of romance!” But it is! I always love writing stories full of danger and unexpected twists - and this definitely has those elements, but it also has my favorite friendship I’ve ever written into a book, and a courageous, outspoken heroine who cannot stay out of trouble even if her life depends upon it (and in this case, it does)! There are two songs that heavily influenced the writing of this book. The first is “Breaking the Habit” by Linkin Park (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLQs0OrHiPY) and “I’m Gonna Be” by The Proclaimers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otXGqU4LBEI). You might not think those songs work together, but once you read the book, you’ll get it! I hope you’ll plan on reading “The Scourge” this fall - it’s a story I’m very proud of and one I think YA readers are going to love!

~Jennifer A. Nielsen (THE SCOURGE, Scholastic)

About the Book
 

As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on. 

But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so? "The Scourge" is an explosively thrilling tale of adventure and intrigue, courage and heart from "New York Times" bestselling author Jennifer A. Nielsen.

This sounds better than ice cream! What a great plot! I'm ready to read it. I love the cover. Very clever having the tree morph into the title of the book. I like The Scourge as a title. It really makes you curious and draws you in.

The cover is so gorgeous and telling--this girl is wrongly imprisoned and I can see that she wants out and will use everything she's got to free herself and find the truth. Matches the synopsis well!
