It's live!! Cover Reveal: Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker + Giveaway (US/Canada)

 

Welcome to the first cover reveal of February!

Today we're celebrating the cover for Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker, releasing October 21, 2014 from HarperTeen. Before we get to the cover, here's a message from Natalie:

 

Don’t judge a book by what it chooses to wear to school. We all know this. We also know not to go swimming within 30 minutes of eating, but I’m guessing we’re all guilty of that, too.

I wanted my cover to do six impossible things before breakfast…and then make me breakfast. That’s a tall order for something so flammable. It’s an especially tall order for something I had zero control over. But the day my cover arrived in my inbox, I knew it was a coat my book would be happy to wear every single day of its life.

Go on. Judge my book by its cover. I’m six kinds of okay with that.

Natalie C. Parker (BEWARE THE WILD, HarperTeen)

BEWARE THE WILD

by Natalie C. Parker
Release date: October 21, 2014
Publisher: HarperTeen

 

About the Book

There’s something about the swamp in Sticks, Louisiana. Something different, something haunting . . . something alive. Everyone knows this, and everyone avoids going near it. And even the Mardi Gras–bead-decorated fence that surrounds it keeps people away.

Until one morning when Sterling Saucier’s older brother Phineas runs into the swamp . . .

And doesn’t return.

Instead, a girl named Lenora May climbs out in his place, and all of a sudden, no one in Sticks remembers Phin at all. They treat Lenora May as if she’s been Sterling’s sister forever.

Sterling needs to figure out what the swamp’s done with her beloved brother and how Lenora May is connected to his disappearance—but first she’s got to find someone who believes her.

Heath Durham might be that someone. A loner shrouded behind rumors of drug addiction, Heath has had his own strange experience with the swamp. He and Sterling will have to piece together enough bits of memory and ancient swamp lore to get to the truth. But as the wild swamp encroaches on their town, Sterling and Heath may find a lot more than they expected . . . and Phin may be lost to them forever.
