It's live!! Cover Reveal: The Stars Turned Away by Lisa Maxwell + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers! We've got another gorgeous cover reveal for you! 

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE STARS TURNED AWAY by Lisa Maxwell, releasing February 2, 2016 from Simon Pulse. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Lisa:

 

Hi YABC! And welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for THE STARS TURNED AWAY! I’m so excited to finally be able to share this cover with you all. When this book sold back in 2014, it was called HEARTLESS THINGS, but the team at Simon Pulse had an idea in mind for the cover that required a new title. Many, many months and emails later, we decided on the perfect one—THE STARS TURNED AWAY—and then I finally got to see the cover they’d had in the works all along. I’ll admit, when I was writing the book, I didn’t really have a sense of what I’d want for a cover. “An island, maybe?” I thought vaguely. But when I saw the gorgeous, finished cover, I was blown away. I hope you are, too!

About the Book

 

For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home—all because her mother believes that monsters are hunting them. Now these delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. The only saving grace is her best friend, Olivia, who’s coming with them for the summer.
 
But when Gwen and Olivia are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and taken to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey, Gwen realizes her mom might have been sane all along.
 
The world Gwen finds herself in is called Neverland, yet it’s nothing like the stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through her fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the roguish young pirate who promises to keep her safe.
 
With time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But will she be able to save Neverland without losing herself?

I'm loving this cover! It's eerie and creepy, and it matches the synopsis perfectly. I need this book yesterday. Peter Pan is one of my absolute favorite stories, and I can't wait to see Neverland turned on its head in this book!
