It’s Live! Cover Reveal: Off Trail by Rick Polito + Giveaway (US Only)
We're so excited to celebrate the cover reveal for
Off Trail by Rick Polito,
releasing 06/03/2021 from Wise Wolf Books!
Writing OFF TRAIL, it sometimes felt like the story was telling itself. I could see the characters moving through the story as if it had really happened and I really think I'd recognize them walking down the street. What I couldn't see was the cover. I guess I'm better at a keyboard than a sketchbook because I was blanking on ideas. Then Wise Wolf Books showed up and they nailed it on the first try, hinting at the story but not giving it away, bringing the setting and sense of place to life without imposing a plot. I'm really excited to share OFF TRAIL with readers and I couldn't be happier with the way this cover invites readers into the story.
Here it is!

About the Book
A laugh-out-loud coming of age story of one teen’s preposterous experience in a wilderness therapy program.
Daniel grew up in the shadow of his older sister, the brash, self-assured, and utterly reckless Jackie, now living with her dirtbag boyfriend and wandering through dead-end jobs. When his parents find her marijuana stash in his closet and decide they do not want him to turn out like his sister, Daniel suffers the “trickle-down parenting” effect and is sent to Quest Trail.
Surrounded by other similarly uprooted teens, Daniel endures a series of preposterous self-discovery exercises and gets caught up in a rivalry with Troy, a too-tough poser, as they vie for the attention of Vera, a charismatic California teen who grew up with too much money and not enough emotional connection.
Just as Daniel’s confidence begins to grow and things start to look up, the Quest Trail program dissolves into complete chaos.
Sometimes humorous, sometimes painful, Off Trail shows an authentic account of all the embarrassing and heart-wrenching moments of being a teen.
About the Author
Off Trail is his first published novel, and Polito says he writes in the young adult genre because he appreciates the “urgency” of the teen years and believes it takes readers to a place that is both dramatic and familiar to everyone. A father of two and a native of Arizona, the setting for Off Trail, Polito now lives in Denver, with his girlfriend Angela and Rocket, the insane Jack Russell Terrier.
