Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Not Our Summer by Casie Bazay,

releasing 5/11/2021 from Runnng Press/ Hachette!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share the cover of my debut novel, NOT OUR SUMMER, with you and also host a book giveaway on YABC. This was a really fun book to write for two main reasons: 1.) the amazing places K.J. and Becka visit as they try to fulfill Grandpa Eli’s bucket list and 2.) the drama between the two main characters, themselves. I truly hope readers enjoy K.J. and Becka’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Stay awesome and keep reading!













Here it is!

About the Book

Five trips, two cousins, one family feud, and a summer that will change their lives forever.

It's bad enough that estranged cousins Becka and KJ see each other at their grandfather's funeral, but when he leaves them a bucket list of places to visit together over the summer, so they can earn their inheritance, it seems like things are about to get much worse.

However, with each trip the cousins complete -- like riding mules into the Grand Canyon or encountering a bear and a hot tour guide at Yellowstone -- they steadily learn about and begin to trust one another. That is until the truth behind Grandpa's bucket list, and their family feud, is revealed, testing Becka and KJ far beyond their limits.

Will they find a way to accept each other or will their grandpa's wish to mend his divided family end up buried alongside him inside his grasshopper green casket?
