It's live!! Cover Reveal: The Secret Side of Empty by Maria E. Andreu + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABC!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE SECRET SIDE OF EMPTY by Maria E. Andreu, releasing September 1, 2015 from Running Press. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Maria:

 

YABC Readers!  I’m so excited to share the paperback cover for THE SECRET SIDE OF EMPTY.  I thought I couldn’t love a cover more than that of the hardcover edition of TSSoE.  I was wrong!  I think this paperback cover so perfectly encapsulates the mood of the book and the red, white and blue gives a subtle hint at the conflict.  Plus it’s nice to have a bit of history when a cover is revealed so that you can “show off” some of the nice awards and reviews. It’s always a little nerve-wracking to let go and trust when something as personal as YOUR book cover is being designed without YOU (in retrospect, thank goodness for that).  But as soon as I saw this I knew that the team at Running Press completely “got” the story.
 
I am SO excited to share this cover with you.  Please enter to win a signed copy!

What do you think about the cover and the synopsis?

The cover is absolutely gorgeous! The design is amazing and the typography of the cover is very Minimal , which I really love and it really captures my attention and every YA Book Lovers in the world because I am a certified Young Adult Book Lover! And I really want to have this book and do book reviews on it! As I reviewed on the detail of this book , is .. it is all about this girl named M.T or Monserrat Thalia who is a senior student and her school , National Honor Society which is wants her to plan their trip abroad . And in M.T's mind she can't go to college and her family life unraveling . She is staring down a future that seems empty . But in the end , M.T should have faith on herself to get the meaning of life and believe on herself what she wanted to be .

The synopsis is really vague, so I'm intrigued: s she illegal because she's an immigrant or a clone or a cyborg or blond? The cover looks freaking amazing I love the way the letters are.

It's especially intriguing! The font fits well with the rest of the cover. The cover's photo and coloring are beautiful.

The cover is intriguing but the synopsis is pretty general so it's hard to tell what it is about. Maybe about fitting in?
