Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for SAFE & SOUND by Alli Hope, releasing February 22, 2017 from Elephantine. Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Alli:
Hello YABC lovelies! Welcome to the cover reveal for SAFE & SOUND, my debut YA novel. I am so excited to be able to finally share it with you guys. I have been waiting for this day for a LONG time. Like the kind of long that seems impossible to quantify in mere words. And now that day is HERE! So, you can imagine how much jumping up and then unceremoniously and not-so-gracefully falling back down is happening in my life today. I was lucky enough to get asked my thoughts on this cover during every step of the process, and my publisher always listened and explained all the decisions to me. Because while I like to think I’m quite crafty with words, cover art is not so my expertise, and overwhelmed is a thing that I become easily with too many options. But before we even started the process, I was stuck with this idea of a girl’s reflection in broken glass. SO IMAGINE MY DELIGHT AT THIS OUTCOME. When I saw the final cover, I clapped and then sobbed, effectively freaking out my roommate who was working ten feet away from me.
I hope you guys love it as much as I do. WHICH IS TO SAY A WHOLE LOT.
~Alli Hope (SAFE & SOUND, Elephantine)

SAFE & SOUND
High school junior, Hailey Perish, knows her life can’t get much worse. Since her dad split a few years ago, Hailey’s mother has spiraled hard and fast, careening toward rock bottom and threatening to take her daughter down with her. Hailey now marks time by evictions, her mother’s poker games, and Saturday School where she voluntarily shows up for weekend detentions to secure her one promised meal of the week. She has no room for relationships, especially with someone like her childhood love and golden boy of their high school class, Carson Hart. Hailey trusted him once and Carson failed her. She’s determined not to let herself be hurt again.
When Hailey’s mom does the unthinkable and bets her own daughter in a high stakes poker game, Mitch, the loan shark, is all too eager and determined to collect on his debt. To him, Hailey is nothing but property. His property. And he’ll do anything to recover it. On the run from a fate that promises a much worse life than she already knows, there’s only one person in the world Hailey can call for help.
Will Carson be there for her in her darkest hour and deliver her from harm’s way safe and sound? Or will he abandon Hailey—just like he’s always done—just like they all do?
Alli Hope’s debut novel delivers an unforgettable story about love & surviving in the dark places. Safe & Sound contains mature situations and content.
