It's live!! Cover Reveal: The Lost Girls by Mari Bianca + Giveaway (International)

Hello, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE LOST GIRLS by Mari Bianca, releasing August 8, 2015. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Mari:

 
I am so excited to be revealing the cover for THE LOST GIRLS – a project very close to my heart. It’s not easy being a teenager. In fact, the teenage years are absolutely, positively some of the most grueling a person has to get through. I wrote this book to help empower readers, to remind them that there is light at the end of the tunnel, that when people pick on you, it’s because of something they lack, not you! So when you’re looking at the ‘beautiful people’ in school and you’re feeling a bit lost, remember what JRR Tolkien once said: All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost. 
 
A very special shout-out to the wonderful, talented, beautiful cover designer Ana Cruz, who was a pleasure to work with on this project. Thank you for your hard work Ana. I love my cover!!

About the Book
 
Abigail Harper has had it rough. She’s lost everything she’s ever loved. Her parents. Her home. And, eventually, her best friend. Afraid of almost everything and tormented at school by the only one she ever called ‘friend’, Abigail doesn’t think life could get any worse. 
 
She soon realizes that life could get much worse. In fact, it could become an absolute catastrophe. During a cruel prank and in a moment of terrible weakness, Abigail makes a wish. And to her astonishment and utter horror, the wish comes true. And it brings with it monstrous consequences. 
 
Now, she’s been shuffled halfway across the country, to a small New England town that not even the Internet seems to have a record of. And from the moment she arrives, Abigail knows something's off - maybe even seriously wrong - about the mysterious Shadow Springs. Full of secrets, dark surprises and a sinister presence that seems hellbent on her destruction, Abigail must turn to a strange group of girls to find answers: The Lost Girls.

The cover is amazing, I'll definitely be looking up art from Ana Cruz after this.
As for the synopsis, I was actually rolling my eyes until the last part of the last sentence, which was really the only thing that really caught my attention. I really can't tell if I'd like this book or not just based on the synopsis, though I do like the idea. I'm sort of stuck between thinking it's going to be horribly cliché or it's going to be my new favorite for the summer. The synopsis doesn't reveal enough for me to really be sure, which is actually a good thing, in my opinion- curious is better. I hope all that makes some amount of sense, because in my head it didn't.
