It’s live!! Cover Reveal: Wanderlost by Jen Malone + Giveaway (US/Canada/International)



Hello, YABC!

Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for WANDERLOST by Jen Malone, releasing May 31, 2016 from HarperTeen. Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Jen:

Okay, so I live to travel and will talk about it, daydream about it, and write about it every chance I get. When I was twenty-two I took a yearlong solo journey around the world, visiting 43 countries, living on about $25 a day, and loving (mostly) every second of it. That trip changed me in a million ways and shows up in a lot of my books, but this time around I thought it would be fun to write about a girl who never had the wanderlust I did—Aubree is completely happy being a homebody and when she’s forced out of her comfort zone she’s pretty overwhelmed by the Big Wide World. She definitely has to earn that moment on the cover where she finally takes it all in. Can I just add that I also adore this cover for sooo perfectly referencing a scene from the book where Aubree first rebels and ditches the bus tour itinerary she’s been given to fangirl her passengers through all the Sound of Music sights in Salzburg, Austria. The hilltop where Fraulein Maria does her spinning in the movie is private property, so they have to sneak up there, but it’s worth a little law breaking… (And extra kudos to cover designer Kate Engbring for such swoony sunset colors.) I hope you guys love it as much as I do!

~ Jen Malone (WANDERLOST, HarperTeen)

About the Book
Aubree Sadler can’t think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she’s ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister Elizabeth gets into real trouble, Bree is talked into taking over Elizabeth’s summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour through Europe. Never mind that Aubree has never left the country, or that the tour company still thinks they’re getting exceptional Elizabeth and not trainwreck Bree.  
Aubree doesn’t even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan unravels, leaving her with no phone, no carefully-prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour owner’s son, Sam. Considering she’s pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn’t fall for him, but she can’t help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story. 
But her relationship with Sam is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she’s letting both of them down. Bree knows this trip may show her who she really is—she just hopes she likes what she sees.
