It's live!! Cover Reveal: Vicarious by Paula Stokes + Giveaway (International)

Hello, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for VICARIOUS by Paula Stokes, releasing August 2016 from Tor Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Paula:

 
I am so excited to be here on YABC revealing the cover for VICARIOUS. This book has been the slowest of all my books as far as path to publication. I wrote it way back in 2012, but due to a variety of factors (finishing grad school, overlapping deadlines with my work-for-hire books, my option clause, etc.) it didn’t go out on sub until the end of 2013 and it’s not hitting the shelves until over four years after I started writing it. Having these characters in my brain for so long has made them incredibly real to me. I wanted a cover that did justice to their story and struggles, so what I asked for was a fierce-looking Korean model, the St. Louis skyline, and a dark, gritty futuristic feel. So basically this cover is everything I’ve ever dreamed of, and then some. Even the little things like the swirls of snow, the tilted horizon, and the fonts are perfect. I am so grateful to my editor Melissa Frain and the design team at Tor for coming up with this incredible cover art! I hope you love it as much as I do :)

VICARIOUS

by Paula Stokes
Release date: August 2016
Publisher: Tor Teen
 
 
About the Book
 
Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them survived growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.
 
Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.
 
When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.
 
Great for fans of All Our Yesterdays, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Inception, Vicarious is an unforgettable, action-packed, high-tech thriller.

I've been wanting to read this book since Paula first told me about it! The cover is absolutely gorgeous and I love that they didn't white-wash the protagonist! I can't wait to read this futuristic murder mystery.

I love the cover! I have never read or even heard of a book with this plot for YA, so I'm excited to read how you did it. I love mysteries and action and your book promises this and so much more.

The cover is catchy. The story sounds very interesting. The idea of seeing her sister's murder is creepy. Inception is one of my favorite movies (Joseph Gordon Levitt heck yeah).

Great cover. The model looks fierce! Sounds really interesting. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the first thing that came to mind when I read the synopsis.
