It's live!! Cover Reveal: How It Ends by Catherine Lo + Giveaway (International)

We have another great cover reveal for you, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for HOW IT ENDS by Catherine Lo, releasing June 7, 2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Catherine:

 
Hi YABC! Welcome to the cover reveal for HOW IT ENDS.
 
A little something about me – I’m a huge admirer of visual artists, but have absolutely zero skill in that area. Less than zero. So when people asked me what I hoped for in a cover, I just stared at them blankly. I couldn’t imagine how anyone would translate my book into cover art. 
 
On the day the email arrived with the subject line Cover!, my hands were shaking so badly that it took me three tries to tap the attachment. And then the cover you’ll see below filled the screen. To say that I love it would be the understatement of the century. I’m so grateful to everyone at HMH Kids for all their hard work, including my editor Sarah Landis and the amazing designer who created this stunning cover, Cara Llewellyn. 
 
I cannot wait to share this book with all of you, and revealing the cover is just the first step.
 
So scroll down and check it out! And let me know what you think on Twitter with the hashtag #HIEcover.
 
~ Catherine Lo (HOW IT ENDS, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers)

HOW IT ENDS

by Catherine Lo
Release date: June 7, 2016
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 978-0-544-54006-4
 
 
About the Book
 
How it begins…
 
"You're in my English class, right?"
I almost checked behind me to make sure she wasn't talking to someone else.
 
How it unravels…
 
“You can be my best friend without being my only friend."
Her words were knives raked along my skin. I could hear the goodbye in every syllable.
 
How it Ends.
 
Why should I keep her secrets when she didn't keep mine? All it would take was one little click and a carefully worded message.
 
How it Ends is an honest, heart-wrenching tale of a friendship from first meeting to breakup. Told through alternating points of view, it is about two best friends’ tumultuous sophomore year of bullying, boys and backstabbing and what can happen when friends choose assumptions and fear over each other.

I love this cover, how it looks like they ripped open the heart and lay it bare to all to see. It is gorgeous, I also love the tape that surrounds it, it adds to the ripped heart, like they wanted to repair it.

Also that blurb, just wonderful, can't wait to see how it is done in the book. I like dual POVs and I also love books about secrets and friends. Truly, this sounds like an amazingly great book.

I love the colors and design of the cover. It's gorgeous! As for the synopsis, I think that the story would be totally relateable. I mean, everyone's had a falling-out with an ex-BFF or ex-friend at least once before, right? All in all, this is a book to look out for!
