It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Row by J.R. Johansson + Giveaway (International)

Hello, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE ROW by J.R. Johansson, releasing October 11, 2016 from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from J.R.:

 
I've been waiting months to share this cover and start spreading the word about this book. THE ROW is a mystery about Riley and her family. She's a teen girl with a father on death row. With over 1% of adult men in the USA in prison, I wanted to write a story about what it's like to be in a situation like Riley's. And I absolutely love this cover. Andrew Arnold and the creative team at Macmillan are geniuses. I love how this cover just reaches out and grabs your attention. Raw emotion seems to drip from every inch--from the tightly clenched fists to the contrast between the brightness of the jumpsuit and the monochrome of the skin. It's perfect in every way. I hope you think so too! Huge thanks to YABooksCentral for helping me reveal this cover that I feel SO lucky to have. And good luck in the giveaway!

About the Book
 
Seventeen-year-old Riley Beckett is no stranger to prison. Her father is a convicted serial killer on death row who has always maintained that he was falsely accused. Riley has never missed a single visit with her father. She wholeheartedly believes that he is innocent. 
 
Then, a month before the execution date, Riley’s world is rocked when, in an attempt to help her move on, her father secretly confesses to her that he actually did carry out the murders. He takes it back almost immediately, but she cannot forget what he’s told her. Determined to uncover the truth for her own sake, she discovers something that will forever change everything she’s believed about the family she loves.

The book cover is vivid and harsh, like I imagine the book will be. I think it is well suited to the book. It certainly grabbed my attention, and the synopsis kept it. I think this could be a very thought provoking and exciting book to read.

The= cover looks perfect for the book from what I read from the synopsis. The synopsis definitely has me intrigued. It's making me think a lot about how the protagonist will change over time as well as her relationship with her father. Really looking forward to the mystery and drama in this book.

the cover and synopsis go well together. I want to know why a father on death row would tell his daughter that and then retract it. I have to know!

I love the cover, especially the grey skin contrasting with the orange jumpsuit. The story sounds amazing! I've been trying to read more thrillers so I will put this on my TBR list.

I'm not a huge fan of the cover, but the synopsis does sound interesting, and makes up for it!
