It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: Forget This Ever Happened by Cassandra Rose Clarke + Giveaway (US Only)
Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for
Forget This Ever Happened by Cassandra Rose Clarke,
releasing 9/1/2020 from Holiday House!
Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:
Hey, YABC! I'm freaking out about the cover to my next book, FORGET THIS EVER HAPPENED. First of all, it looks like a beat-up old VHS cassette. Second of all, that pink-and-purple beach is straight out of a Lisa Frank illustration. Third of all, that font! That glitch effect! The glorious vaporwave aesthetic of it all! I've lost count of reasons to be excited. Huge props go out to the artist, Luke Bird, who captured my queer, speculative, twisty-turny love story with a striking, perfectly matched visual. Every time I look at it, I see more details that hint at events in the book, and I can't wait for you all to see for yourselves.

About the Book
Sometimes there’s a town called Indianola.
And sometimes there isn’t.
Summer, 1993. Grace is dumped in rural Indianola, Texas, to spend her whole vacation taking care of mean, sickly Grammy. There’s nothing too remarkable about Indianola: it’s run-down, shabby, and stifling hot, a stone’s-throw from the Gulf.
Well, there is one remarkable thing, she discovers. Something otherworldly.
But if you leave Indianola, you forget about it… and if you stay, you have to live with it every day.
Because there’s a confluence of energies at Indianola, a fissure in time and space, a gap in reality. Nothing is as it seems. And unless Grace can figure out this town—the talkative lizards under the pecan trees; the honey-sweet but terrifying girl next door; the cute daughter of a rival family, who would answer Grace’s questions if she had any answers; the pervasive sense of history coming unspooled, like a video tape—she might never leave.
