Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE LOST GIRL OF ASTOR STREET by Stephanie Morrill, releasing February 7, 2017 from Blink YA Books. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Stephanie:
I’ve been counting down the days until I could finally share with you the gorgeous cover for The Lost Girl of Astor Street! Didn’t Ron Huizinga do an amazing job? The girl on the cover is such a perfect Piper, it’s like the designer climbed inside my mind to see what I had imagined her to look like. Particularly her hat. I had originally planned to set the book earlier in the 20s, but when I learned cloche hats didn’t become popular until 1924, I moved the whole timeline just so Piper could wear that hat! I also love how the image captures the mood of the story. Chicago is a favorite place of mine, but when I look at the cover and think about Piper hunting for her best friend on those streets, I get the shivers!

THE LOST GIRL OF ASTOR STREET
When her best friend vanishes without so much as a good-bye, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail takes on the role of amateur sleuth in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. Given that Piper’s tendency has always been to butt heads with high-society’s expectations of her, it’s no surprise that she doesn’t give a second thought to searching for answers to Lydia’s abduction from their privileged neighborhood.
As Piper discovers that those answers might stem from the corruption strangling 1924 Chicago—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.
Perfect for fans of Libba Bray and Anna Godbersen, Stephanie Morrill’s atmospheric jazz-age mystery, The Lost Girl of Astor Street, will take readers from the glitzy homes of the elite to the dark underbelly of 1920s Chicago.
About the Author
Stephanie Morrill is the author of several young adult novels, including the historical mystery, The Lost Girl of Astor Street, which releases in February 2017. Despite loving cloche hats and drop-waist dresses, Stephanie would have been a terrible flapper because she can’t do the Charleston and looks awful with bobbed hair. She and her near-constant ponytail live in Kansas City with her husband and three kids.
