It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: Finding Balance by Kati Gardner + Giveaway (US Only)
Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for
Finding Balance by Kati Gardner,
releasing May 5, 2020 from Flux/North Star Editions!
Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:
When thinking about the cover for FINDING BALANCE I only had one request, to see a girl with one leg on the cover.
Mari Manos is a strong character, she’s smart, and witty, and is also an amputee. And I wanted that on the cover.
When I first saw the cover I cried. I was sitting in my car after running errands and opened my email to see it. My breath caught and tears flooded my eyes. There on the cover was a teenage girl with one leg. She looked fierce and independent and all of the things that I knew Mari to be.
Sarah Taplin is a master. I cannot wait to put FINDING BALANCE on a shelf next to her beautiful cover for BRAVE ENOUGH.
I hope you love it too!
Here it is!

About the Book
Jase Ellison doesn’t remember having acute lymphocytic leukemia when he was three years old. His cancer diagnosis only enters his mind twice a year. Once at his yearly checkup at the oncology clinic and one when he attends Camp Chemo in the summer. No one in his “real” life knows about his past, especially his friends at Atlanta West Prep.
Mari Manos has never been able to hide her cancer survivorship. She wakes every morning, grabs her pink forearm clip crutches, and starts her day. Mari loves Camp Chemo—where she’s developed a healthy crush on fellow camper Jase. At Camp, she knows that she’ll never get “the look” or have to explain her amputation to anyone.
Jase wants to move on, to never reveal his past. But when Mari transfers to his school, he knows she could blow his cover. That’s the last thing he wants, but he also cannot ignore his attraction to her. Mari wants to be looked at like a girl, a person, and not only known for her disability. But how do you move on from cancer when the world won’t let you?
