It's Live!! Cover Reveal: As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti + Giveaway (US/Canada)
Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for AS YOU WISH by Chelsea Sedoti, releasing January, 2018, from Sourcebooks Fire. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Chelsea:
Hey there, YABC readers! I’m so excited to share the cover for AS YOU WISH—a magical realism novel about a strange desert town where wishes come true.
Lucky for me, I didn’t have to transport myself into the book to see one of my wishes brought to life: my wish for a cover I’d adore. From the moment I first laid eyes on it, I fell in love with the design for AS YOU WISH. The title font! The gorgeous, star-filled sky! The desert landscape that so perfectly represents the place I call home. The awesome team at Sourcebooks managed to do what I never could—summed up the feel of the book in a single image.
I’ll admit it: I probably spent the better part of a day gazing adoringly at the cover. I wanted to run out and share it with the world, and anxiously waited for my chance to do so. Finally, that moment has arrived. Thanks for being here to share my excitement with me. I hope you all love the cover as much as I do!

AS YOU WISH
In the sandy desert of the Mojave, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. It’s not an exciting place to live, but Eldon’s not about to wish to be somewhere else. Because in Madison, everyone gets one wish on their eighteenth birthday- and that wish always comes true.
Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but on one wishes for happiness. In Madison, wishing is happiness. Except Eldon has seen how wishing has hurt the people around him. His parent’s marriage is strained, his sister is a virtual ghost in their house, his ex-girlfriend is dating his ex-friend… Where does he even begin? Can he make their lives better? Can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? What even is happiness?
One thing is for sure: Eldon has only twenty-five days to figure it out- and the rest of his life to live with the consequences.
Chelsea Sedoti lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her short stories have been published in Pantheon Magazine and Balloons Lit Journal. She went to school for film and worked as a videographer before switching to writing. Chelsea spends her time rock climbing, baking, and exploring the Mojave Desert. Visit chelseasedoti.com.

The book seems terribly heartbreaking but at the same time, the cover feels like so much hope. It's beautiful. I can't wait to read this.
Who hasn't wished for wishes at some point during the teen years? This book makes me wonder what he'll choose! I like the cover, too.
Wow, what a supercool premise. The idea that everyone gets only one wish--I can't imagine how agonizing it would be to choose what the wish would be and then worry you'll spend the rest of your life regretting that you didn't ask for something different. This sounds SO good!
Also I didn't realize this was the same author as Lizzie Lovett which got a lot of attention. So doubly excited now!
