It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Starworld (Audrey Coulthurst/Paula Garner), Plus Giveaway! (US/Canada Only)

unnamed-3

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Starworld by Audrey Coulthurst/Paula Garner,

releasing April 2019 from Candlewick Press!

 

 

 

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

 

Hello YABC readers! Today we’re thrilled to share the cover of Starworld with you. This novel was born when we asked ourselves one question: what would have happened if high school Audrey had met high school Paula? We believed with all our hearts that, despite how completely different we were as teens, we would have seen one another and forged the same kind of magical connection we did as adults. Pam Consolazio, our gifted and hard-working cover designer, created this design that brilliantly captures the way an entire universe of wonders can exist between two people who, on the surface, seem as different as different can be. The title itself serves almost as a ladder to the sky—and to the imagined worlds where Sam and Zoe escape the day-to-day hardships they face.

We hope you love Starworld as much as we do!

~ Audrey and Paula ~

About the Book
 
Sam Jones and Zoe Miller have one thing in common: they both want an escape from reality. Loner Sam flies under the radar at school and walks on eggshells at home to manage her mom’s obsessive-compulsive disorder, wondering how she can ever leave to pursue her dream of studying aerospace engineering. Popular, people-pleasing Zoe puts up walls so no one can see her true self: the girl who was abandoned as an infant, whose adoptive mother has cancer, and whose disabled brother is being sent away to live in a facility. When an unexpected encounter results in the girls’ exchanging phone numbers, they forge a connection through text messages that expands into a private universe they call Starworld. In Starworld, they find hilarious adventures, kindness and understanding, and the magic of being seen for who they really are. But when Sam’s feelings for Zoe turn into something more, will the universe they’ve built survive the inevitable explosion?

I love that cover -- the writing on the sides creates interest.
The summary appeals to me, too. It sounds like the book deals with some issues that today's teen will relate to.
