It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: The Hive by Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hive-The-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

The Hive by Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden,

releasing September 3, 2019 from KCP Loft!

 

First, a message from the authors!

 

 

This cover was a long time coming...in fact, after countless versions of it, we landed back on the very first one the designer, Emma Dolan, created. Ironic! And funny! (To us. Probably not to Emma. But we did get to see lots of cool concepts!) Anyway, welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for THE HIVE! 

One of the reasons we kept circulating through so many cover options is because THE HIVE itself isn't about just one thing. It's a thriller. It's a tale of how life-altering grief can be. It's a reminder of the power of social media...and of standing up for ourselves. And perhaps most of all, it's a warning. The cover needed to reflect all of that, while also preserving a bit of mystery. We hope you love it...and we hope you love reading it, too!

THE HIVE

Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden

Release date: September 3, 2019

Publisher: KCP Loft

About the Book

Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive.

Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers — like Cassie’s dad — were powerless against it.

But then the Hive came. A better way to sanction people for what they do online. Cause trouble, get too many "condemns," and a crowd can come after you, teach you a lesson in real life. It’s safer, fairer and perfectly legal.

Entering her senior year of high school, filled with grief over an unexpected loss, Cassie is primed to lash out. Egged on by new friends, she makes an edgy joke online. Cassie doubts anyone will notice.

But the Hive notices everything. And as her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy, the Hive demands retribution.

One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she’s infamous. And running for her life.

With nowhere to turn, she must learn to rely on herself — and a group of Hive outcasts who may not be reliable — as she slowly uncovers the truth about the machine behind the Hive.

New York Times bestselling authors Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden have teamed up for the first time to create a novel that’s gripping, terrifying and more relevant every day.

The cover is fantastic and I enjoyed reading the blurb about how it was chosen. I am very interested in this novel which is very timely. I think we have some real life concerns with social media which the novel may illuminate.
