It's live!! Cover Reveal: Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods + Giveaway (US Only)

Hello, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS by Darcy Woods, releasing May 10, 2016 from Random House/Crown Books for Young Readers. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Darcy:

 
Hello YABC! And welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for my debut novel, SUMMER OF SUPERNOVAS! To say that I'm thrilled to be here is a supreme understatement. The fact is, my soul is ready to split seven ways like a horcrux from my enthusiasm! But I'll spare you the fragments of my soul matter. And really, if anyone's going to get a piece of my immortal self, I should probably offer it up (along with my undying gratitude) to the amazing creators of this cover--dream team Alison Impey and Liz Casal! They've done a stunning job in capturing the essence of Wilamena Carlisle, set against a deeply romantic and whimsical landscape (because, hello? DAY stars!).

Now please, go forth and ogle. I hope you enjoy. :)

As the daughter of an expert astrologer, Wilamena Carlisle knows that the truth lies within the stars. So when she discovers a rare planetary alignment, she is forced to tackle her worst astrological fear – The Fifth House of Relationships and Love. But Wil must decide whether a cosmically doomed love is worth rejecting her mother’s legacy, when she falls for a sensitive guitar player hailing from the wrong side of the chart.

Debut author Darcy Woods explores love in all its complexities and how to best honor the loved ones who have passed before us, in a novel packed with both humor and heart.
