It’s Live! Cover Reveal: BELITTLED WOMEN (Amanda Sellet), Plus Giveaway! ~ US/CAN Only



Hi, YABCers!

Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for BELITTLED WOMEN (Amanda Sellet)  releasing on November 29, 2022 from Clarion Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.


Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Amanda Sellet: 

Today I am thrilled to share the playful perfection of the BELITTLED WOMEN cover, designed by Natalie Sousa and Samira Iravani, with a brilliant illustration by Monique Aimee! From the fresh palette and floral accents to the retro-chic stylings of the characters, this cover captures the irreverent spirit of my modern riff on (you guessed it) Little Women.

The familiar story of Christmas mornings, sibling ties that bind (and gag), and crushing on the boy next door gets twisted like a balloon animal this time around. Take it from Jo, who finds the family re-enactment business too March to handle:  

“It might have been easier if I’d found allies in my sisters, but nothing bothered Meg, who maxed out at about sixty-five percent consciousness, and Amy ate up the attention with a spoon. That left me on the outside, the problem child with the bad attitude—like one of the kids from The Sound of Music smashing a guitar and screaming, Screw this—I hate folk songs! in the middle of the cuckoo-clock number.

I thought they were nuts, they thought I was a jerk, and then we all strapped on our bonnets and pretended to be the happiest family in the history of books.”

For more of Jo’s grumbling, Amy’s grandstanding, and all the Alcott puns you never knew you needed, check out BELITTLED WOMEN on November 29.

About the Book:

BelittedWomen cover reveal 1

Jo Porter has had enough Little Women to last a lifetime. As if being named after the sappiest family in literature wasn’t sufficiently humiliating, Jo’s mom, ahem Marmee, leveled up her Alcott obsession by turning their rambling old house into a sad-sack tourist attraction. Now Jo, along with siblings Meg and Bethamy (yes, that’s two March sisters in one), spends all summer acting out sentimental moments at Little Women Live!, where she can feel her soul slowly dying.

So when a famed photojournalist arrives to document the show, Jo seizes on the glimpse of another life: artsy, worldly, and fast-paced. It doesn’t hurt that the reporter’s teenage son is also eager to get up close and personal with Jo—to the annoyance of her best friend, aka the boy next door (who is definitely not called Laurie). All Jo wants is for someone to see the person behind the prickliness and pinafores. But when she gets a little too real about her frustration with the family biz, Jo will have to make peace with kitsch and kin before their livelihood suffers a fate worse than Beth.
