It's live!! Cover Reveal: Tor Maddox: Unleashed by Liz Coley + Giveaway (International)

Hi, YABCers, and welcome to today's cover reveal!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for TOR MADDOX: UNLEASHED by Liz Coley, releasing May 1, 2015 from LCTeen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Liz:

 
Hi YABC! I’m thrilled to introduce you to Tor Maddox, a heroine for our times. No magical powers, no dystopian big brother, just a girl who leaps before she looks. She knows the world can be better, she believes people can be saved, and she feels compelled to run straight into the thick of the action, no matter how dangerous. She’s bigger and braver than I am. I wish she were my best friend. So many things are “Unleashed” in this series first novel—a new virus, her beloved pet Cocoa, a forbidden romance, and Tor herself. Cover by little old me, with advice from a posse of teenagers, and thanks to the enormous photo library at Bigstock. To start your summer reading early, book 1 launches May 1.
 
~ Liz Coley (TOR MADDOX: UNLEASHED, LCTeen)

About the Book
 
When sixteen-year old Torrance Olivia Maddox, self-confessed news junkie, figures out that the mysterious and deadly New Flu is being spread by dogs, she has one question—if the danger is that obvious to her, why hasn’t the government revealed the truth and taken action?
 
Her search for the answer will take her farther than she ever imagined. But then again, she never imagined that man’s best friend could become public enemy number one, that men in black might show up in her cozy suburban neighborhood, that she’d spend her sixteenth birthday as a teenaged runaway, and that her effort to save one dog would become a mission to save them all.

The cover is okay, but the book sounds really good and original- I have never read a book about the dog flu, so that aspect sounds promising.

Personally, I think that the synopsis is waaaay better than the cover, but I'm not saying that the cover is bad. Nope, the cover is very nice, and the simple color scheme is captivating (unlike those other book covers with all the colors in the spectrum), but the synopsis is just more original.

I like the color scheme for the cover, and that is one doggone cute dog! It's kind of simple though, and I have no idea what Tor is wearing. Are those socks or leg warmers or what? I'm getting a not-your-average-girl vibe from her already. I wish the cover was more complex. It seems very simple with just a few elements that don't really interact.

The synopsis is really well written, in that it instantly makes me curious! I almost categorically don't read "dog books" because they get sappy fast, but this sounds like an actual adventure that follows someone competent and quick-witted. Glad to be entering the giveaway!

The synopsis sound very interesting. I've never read a dog book but after reading this I really want to! I love the dog on the cover. He reminds me of my neighbours dog that I used to play with all the time when I was younger

Got to be honest... I find that the cover could have been so much better, in terms of both the concept and Photoshop techniques. The synopsis itself sounds quite interesting with a promise of a teenage thrilling adventure; what with big and serious words like "government", "mission", etc thrown in. But the cover doesn't reflect any of that at all. No sense of thrill or adventure. It seems that the designer just threw in a picture of a dog and teenager's legs there without much thought. The font of the title and tagline is a bit of a bummer too.

I love the colour scheme of the cover, the pink is very eye catching. I like the socks Tor has on, she gives off a young and hip vibe. The dog is, of course, adorable. The story sounds unique and interesting.
