It's live!! Cover Reveal: The Yearbook by Carol Masciola + Giveaway (US/Canada/Europe)

Hi, everyone!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE YEARBOOK by Carol Masciola, releasing November 18, 2015 from Merit Press. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Carol:

 
I’m so delighted to show off the cover of my novel, The Yearbook, which I think conveys the mood of magic and uncertainty I’ve tried to create in the story. Lola Lundy, the protagonist, is a teenager who seems to find a portal to the past among stacks of antique library books. The designers, Christina Riddle of Edgewater Graphics, and Frank Rivera, with FW Media, used an authentic 1920s photograph of a young flapper, combined with pastel toned bookshelves, to evoke the hazy backdrop where Lola’s story unfolds—is it real, or hallucinatory? The mirror effect Frank chose for the title lettering suggests, to me, the dual worlds of past and present fading into each other, and perhaps, as well, the not-always-clear line between reality and fantasy, sanity and madness. I could not have dreamed of a better visual expression of the novel!

About the Book
 
Misfit teen Lola Lundy falls asleep in a storage room in her high school library and wakes up to find herself 80 years in the past. The Fall Frolic dance is going full blast in the gym, and there she makes an instant connection with the brainy and provocative Peter Hemmings, class of ’24. His face is familiar, and she realizes she’s seen his senior portrait in a ragged old yearbook in the storage room.
 
By the end of the dance, Lola begins to see a way out of her disastrous Twenty First Century life: She’ll make a new future for herself in the past. But major mental illness lies in Lola’s family background. Has she slipped through a crack in time, or into an elaborate, romantic hallucination based on the contents of an old yearbook?

The cover is completely gorgeous- I love old-timey things, and this cover is just.. I really don't have enough words. Plus, the synopsis sounds SO good, especially because I love historical anything, so getting a chance to go to the 1920s with the characters sounds amazing- plus the mystery part adds to the appeal!

I love stories with unreliable narrators and time travel scenarios! One of my favorite novels and movies is Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson, which has a similar storyline only this is like the YA version of it! I can't wait to read this!
