Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE CRESSWELL PLOT by Eliza Wass, releasing June 7, 2016 from Disney Hyperion. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Eliza:
We all have our story. Something that is unique only to us.
It isn’t always a happy story.
At least not all the time, but it’s personal, vibrant, heart-beating alive. And it’s scary to share.
The Cresswell Plot is that story for me. It was inspired by feelings of powerlessness, of being controlled, of fear, but also by laughter, lust and finding the strength inside to overcome any obstacle, even when you are fighting alone.
I wrote this book for people who feel alone, who question things, who stand up for what they believe in, no matter how powerful the opposition.
It’s just a book, but it’s about something that’s more than a book. It’s about standing up and telling YOUR story, whether it’s happy, sad or life-changing.
Thank you to Maria E. Elias for bringing this story such an exciting cover.

About the Book
The woods were insane in the dark, terrifying and magical at the same time. But best of all were the stars, which trumpeted their light into the misty dark.
Castella Cresswell and her five siblings—Hannan, Casper, Mortimer, Delvive, and Jerusalem—know what it’s like to be different. For years, their world has been confined to their ramshackle family home deep in the woods of upstate New York. They abide by the strict rule of God, whose messages come directly from their father.
Slowly, Castley and her siblings start to test the boundaries of the laws that bind them. But, at school, they’re still the freaks they’ve always been to the outside world. Marked by their plain clothing. Unexplained bruising. Utter isolation from their classmates. That is, until Castley is forced to partner with the totally irritating, totally normal George Gray, who offers her a glimpse of a life filled with freedom and choice.
Castley’s world rapidly expands beyond the woods she knows so well and the beliefs she once thought were the only truths. There is a future waiting for her if she can escape her father’s grasp, but Castley refuses to leave her siblings behind. Just as she begins to form a plan, her father makes a chilling announcement: the Cresswells will soon return to their home in heaven. With time running out on all of their lives, Castley must expose the depth of her father’s lies. The forest has buried the truth in darkness for far too long. Castley might be their last hope for salvation.
