It's live!! Cover Reveal: Last Year's Mistake by Gina Ciocca + Giveaway (US/Canada)
 

Hi, YABCers, and welcome to another cover reveal!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE by Gina Ciocca, releasing Summer 2015 from Simon Pulse. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Gina:

 

Hi, YABC-ers! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to share the cover for LAST YEAR’S MISTAKE today. I’m pretty sure my neighbors could hear the shrieks of glee coming from my kitchen when I saw it for the first time. It’s completely surreal to see a scene plucked from your novel and brought to life in all its sexy glory, almost exactly the way you see it in your head – and that’s what the designers at Simon Pulse did with this cover. I hope you love it as much as I do!

LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE

by Gina Ciocca
Release date: Summer 2015
Publisher: Simon Pulse
 
 
About the Book
Before:
Kelsey and David became best friends the summer before freshman year and were inseparable ever after. Until the night a misunderstanding turned Kelsey into the school joke, and everything around her crumbled—including her friendship with David. So when Kelsey's parents decided to move away, she couldn't wait to start over and leave the past behind. Except, David wasn't ready to let her go...
 
After:
Now it's senior year and Kelsey has a new group of friends, genuine popularity, and a hot boyfriend. Her life is perfect. That is, until David's family moves to town and he shakes up everything. Soon old feelings bubble to the surface and threaten to destroy Kelsey's second chance at happiness. The more time she spends with David, the more she realizes she never truly let him go. And maybe she never wants to.
 
Told in alternating sections, LAST YEAR'S MISTAKE is a charming and romantic debut about loving, leaving, and letting go.

There is nothing better, in my opinion, than kissing or holding someone you love in the rain, so I am absolutely in love with this cover! And the synopsis has gotten me all excited. I'm a sucker for love lost and found again, so I can't wait to read this!
