AUTHOR: Francesca Lia Block
SLATED RELEASE DATE: August 27, 2013 (Henry Holt & Co./Macmillan – North America)
OFFICIAL BLURB: Seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) has lost everything—her home, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother. Like a female Odysseus in search of home, she navigates a dark world full of strange creatures, gathers companions and loses them, finds love and loses it, and faces her mortal enemy.
In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.
Comments: I didn’t even know about this one, guys! I love it when Francesca can still surprise me. I am totally in love with this cover, and I think it might be one of my faves when it comes to her YA bibliography – though I do have to say that it does remind me a little of the cover for “The Water and the Wild”. I’m pretty excited about this one, guys, and you can bet that regardless if it’s pre or post-pub, BOANW will be reviewing it.
What do you think of this cover? Let me know in the comments!
