Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Calculated by Nova McBee,

releasing 2/11/2021 from Wise Wolf Books!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hi YABC! Welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for CALCULATED!

I'm so excited to share with you the cover for my debut novel, CALCULATED. This cover was everything I hoped for – a sense of intrigue and action, gender neutral, looming city, the infinity sign that could also double as an 8...yeah, you will have to read the book to get that reference! Anyway, I was totally blown away by designer Cherie Chapman's idea & artwork, and so grateful to everyone at Wise Wolf Books who was involved. I've stared at it more times than I can count, and just laughed in joy because it just fits the series so well, and seriously, what else could a debut author ask for? *gushes with thankfulness*​ 

Check out the description of the book below and if it grabs you, then I have good news: the PRE-ORDER for CALCULATED just went live today!! More good news: Anyone who pre-orders the book will get a special swag gift & be entered into a grand prize bookish giveaway!

About the Book

She has many names – Octavia, Double 8, Phoenix, Josephine. She’s a math prodigy, a calculating genius and everyone wants her. 

In seventeen-year-old Jo River’s complicated world of numbers, there’s no such thing as coincidence. When she is betrayed by someone she loves, kidnapped by the world’s most wanted smuggler, and forced to use her talent to shore up a criminal empire, Jo deems her gift a curse—until she meets Red. 

Fellow captive and unlikely sage, Red teaches Jo to harness her true potential, so she can do more than just escape. Before he dies, Red reveals a secret about her enemies and makes her vow to right his wrongs. But Jo has a vow of her own. 

With help from Chan, a bitter billionaire, and Kai, his off-limits son, Jo rises into a new role, ready to take down those who ruined her life. Until a mathematical error comes back to haunt her with a threat much more dangerous than the criminals on the loose.

To beat the odds, Jo must decide who she really is and if risking everything is worth it.

After all, history is not made—it’s calculated.
