It's Live!! Cover Reveal: If You Were Here by Jennie Yabroff + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for IF YOU WERE HERE by Jennie Yabroff, releasing January 2, 2017 from Merit Press. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Jennie:

Hey YABCers! “Thanks for getting my undies back.” “Thanks for coming over.” “Thanks for coming to get me.” If you are as big a fan as I am of the classic 1980s movie 16 Candles, you’ll know exactly what those quotes mean. And I hope you are, because otherwise you’ll think I’m very weird. 16 Candles plays a big role in my novel IF YOU WERE HERE – watching it allows my main character, Tess, to escape the grim reality of her life for a few hours. But when tragedy strikes, Tess starts questioning how much of reality she can even trust. My book is about friendship, and family, and 16 Candles (obviously,) but it’s also about the possibility of magic everywhere: the magic of being different, the magic of staying true to yourself, the magic of growing up. I hope you enjoy it!

~Jennie Yabroff (IF YOU WERE HERE, Merit Press)

About the Book

Is there a line between gifted and insane? How do you know if you've crossed it?

Tess was semi-successfully passing for normal before her mother's erratic behavior turned her into social cyanide. Now life is only bearable thanks to weekend 16 Candles and Oreo binges with her best (and only) friend, Tabitha. Then Tabitha inexplicably drops Tess, leaving her alone with her fears about her mother and the troubling visions that leave her shaking with dread. Before Tess can come to terms with this loss, a horrific tragedy occurs at school, and everyone is blaming her. Now, Tess must find answers, fast: What really happened that night at school? Is she responsible? And do her visions mean she has a gift of prophecy, or the same mental illness
that is stealing her mom?

The cover's colors are my favorite, so I really like it. I love the synopsis and it makes me want to know what happened at school and why her best friend abandoned her.

The colors of this cover are absolutely beautiful. It is a simple elegance, sometimes less is more. It is a beautiful cover for what sounds like an awesome book.
