Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

The Redpoint Crux by Morgan Shamy,

releasing 6/9/2020 from The Parliament House!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

Hi YABC! Welcome to the cover reveal for THE REDPOINT CRUX!
My name is Morgan Shamy and I’m so delighted to share with you the cover for my debut novel, THE REDPOINT CRUX. I was a professional ballerina, and my husband was a professional rock climber, so it was fun to combine these two worlds together in this book. I think the cover perfectly depicts the gothic feel that is apparent in this story, so I’m beyond proud of The Parliament House and their team—especially Shayne Leighton. I absolutely love the ballerina (and the tutu) on the cover, and I think the whole thing is stunning. I’m so glad I get to share it with you!

~Morgan Shamy

About the Book

When Megan Van Helsburg gets kicked off the U.S.A. Climbing Team, she has no choice but to return home and leave her climbing career behind. With no coach, no money, and no prospects, she joins the corps de ballet determined to improve her strength and agility. But the ballet theater is in dire straits. Not only do a series of murders break loose, but the ballerinas are becoming deathly thin and brain-dead. As Megan investigates, she meets Bellamy, a tortured young man who lives beneath the depths of the theater. Megan falls hard and fast for Bellamy, who becomes her mentor, but something is off about him.

It isn't until the company announces they're doing Giselle for the fall performance that Megan realizes the parallels between the ghost story and the lives around her. Megan must find a way to not only save her climbing career, but balance her feelings for Bellamy, and stop the murders and dying girls before she, too, is numbered among the dead. 

About the Author

Morgan Shamy is an ex-ballerina turned YA writer. She has been immersed in the arts since the young age of 4, and has performed various roles alongside a professional ballet company, dancing on prestigious stages like soloing at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Morgan discovered writing when her three-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was through that experience which instilled the need to share art and magic with children through words on the page. Her debut novel, The Redpoint Crux, releases on June 9th, 2020.

I don't generally like stories about ballet or dance, but I do like ghost stories. The cover reminds me of Black Swan.
