Trailer Reveal: Things We Know By Heart by Jessi Kirby + Giveaway (US Only)

Hello, YABCers! We're bringing you a different kind of reveal today!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the trailer reveal for THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART by Jessi Kirby, releasing April 21, 2015 from HarperTeen. Before we get to the trailer, here's a note from Jessi:

 

Hi YABC!
 
I’m so very excited to share the Things We Know By Heart trailer with you! I think it captures the feel of the book just perfectly, and for that I have to thank Justin McCaskill and his mad editing skills. We all know a trailer would be nothing without the music, so I also owe a huge thank you to my dear friend Matt Baradat, who watched this a million times, guitar in hand, and came up with a song that fits, beat for beat. Hope you all enjoy!

About the Book

 

In this unforgettable teen romance that fans of Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti will devour, Quinn Sullivan falls for the recipient of her boyfriend's donated heart, forming an unexpected connection that will leave readers utterly breathless.
 
After Quinn's boyfriend, Trent, dies in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the fragments of her now-unrecognizable life. But whoever received Trent's heart has mysteriously remained silent. The essence of a person, Quinn has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent's, then in a way she still has a piece of him.
 
Risking everything to find peace once and for all, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she's falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she's lost . . . and all that remains at stake.

I usually loathe book trailers. Not all, but the ones that contain cheesy acting and weak narration. Thankfully, this one wasn't like that! I've wanted to read this book for a long while now and instead of dissuading me I feel even more anxious to get my hands on it. This trailer was a job well done! I can tell this will be a beautiful heartfelt story. Lol yes pun intended
