It's live!! Cover Reveal: What Happens Now by Jennifer Castle + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hello, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for WHAT HAPPENS NOW by Jennifer Castle, releasing June 7, 2016 from HarperTeen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Jennifer:

 
Hello YABC! I can't think of a better way for my upcoming novel WHAT HAPPENS NOW to take its first step into the world. This is the book of my heart...and this cover makes my heart do Zumba. I want to crawl inside it and live there for a while, which I guess is the whole point of a great cover! I’m always fascinated by how a book cover takes shape, so I asked the people who did all the work here if they would share their process...
 
From Heather Daugherty, Senior Designer at HarperCollins Publishers:
“When I read this book by Jennifer Castle, I was consumed by wanting to freeze life-moments in time. That perfect summer day. That moment your crush knows who you are or actually notices you, or your eyes finally lock for what seems like too long and not long enough at the same time. Those poignant adolescent moments you agonize through, but later wish you had savored every second after they are long gone. The concept of using miniature sculpture, or the diorama art form, to create this book cover seemed daunting and an absolute must at the same time. The perfect challenge! What better way to capture these moments than having an artist sculpt each character by hand, and get it so right?! Thomas Doyle is an extraordinary artist and it was a pleasure brainstorming this amazing cover idea with him!”
 
From Thomas Doyle, New York-based artist (thomasdoyle.net):
“I create miniature worlds that function much like dioramas that I then show in museums and galleries in the US and abroad. The materials are typically those used by model railroaders, along with an array of art and hardware supplies--all brought together to simulate reality in 1:87 scale. I was excited to take part in creating the cover for WHAT HAPPENS NOW because the book itself distills the intense emotions that come with being young in the summertime. In a similar vein, my artwork often seeks to crystallize memories of things past into frozen moments. Having spent many an afternoon along the lakes in Michigan, where I grew up, I wanted the cover to communicate both the expansiveness of the “perfect” summer day, along with the push and pull that accompany a teenage crush. Capturing the two lead characters on the raft, apart yet together, seemed like a great way to tell that story.”
 
Jennifer here again! Um, yeah. I’d say this is a fantastically unique way to tell the story; I hope you all agree. Enjoy this exclusive cover reveal!

About the Book
I know what it is to want something so badly, you feel like your cells aren’t properly bonded together without it. 
I also know what it’s like to get that something.
And honestly, I’m still not sure which is worse. 

Ari Logan is battling to win her war against depression and the dark night she hurt herself on purpose. It’s not easy: her best friend is drifting away, her mom’s emotionally checked out, and she spends her days playing caregiver to her handful of a half-sister, Danielle. But it’s summer, and anything is possible... 

That’s when Camden Armstrong steps onto the beach of Ari’s local swimming lake.  
 
At first, Ari quietly longs for Camden from afar, seeing in him everything she wants to be. When the two discover a true connection the following summer, Ari lets herself fall not just for the quirky and self-assured Camden but also his friends, tumbling into their world of independence, adventure, and shared sci-fi fandom. As Ari’s romantic dreams come true, she must unlock the mysteries of the very real and troubled boy behind her infatuation, while also struggling with her own demons, obligations, and loyalties. 
 
WHAT HAPPENS NOW is a powerful, insightful story about learning to heal, learning to love, and what happens when fantasy becomes reality.

This may be my favorite book cover EVER. I've spent the majority of my life as a competitive swimmer, so this cover speaks to me! Plus, Ari sounds like a character I could really relate to, and I am looking forward to reading her story! This book sounds AMAZING!
