Not long ago, I saw a post on the really awesome Bethany Lamont’s blog (I think I saw it on Tavi Gevinson’s twitter, if I remember rightly.) It was a post about an art/literature type journal she was planning called Doll Hospital. She was asking for…

An incredibly honest and smart post about mental illness and a project that I think will be amazing for raising awareness and destigmatyzing!

I am so thrilled to share that the cover for ALL THE RAGE has been revealed on MTV!!!

3 Things about the cover:

1) It was designed by Lisa Marie Pompilio, who has designed all my covers at St. Martin’s Press. I love her work and her talent makes the choosing difficult because what she’s done for me has been so great, but this is my absolute favourite.

2) Speaking of Lisa AND my editor, they were very very very patient with me and very open for my (lots and lots and lots) of feedback!

3) The photograph perfectly matches the second half of the first chapter. There a couple important details about the book that have made it on to the cover but I’ll say no more about it. (You will know what if you read it!) Just that every time I see them it makes my heart swell.

Had enough of me talking? Want to see the cover? Click the link above! This book is so important to me. I love the cover and I hope you do too.

Here it is, for the first time anywhere: The BEAAUUUUTIFUL cover design for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us!
It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.” We can’t wait!

This week’s diverse new releases:

Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid (Harlequin Teen)

“Leila’s road trip to see the Northern Lights in Alaska takes her across the U.S. and into the lives of a series of desperate teens. In five multichapter vignettes, readers meet these characters in crisis. … debut author Alsaid creates enough adventure to make the stories feel breathless.” — Publishers Weekly

Before You by Amber Hart (KTeen)

“The daughter of a pastor and a young man on the run from a Cuban drug cartel get past their initial animosity to fall in love in this sexy romance. … This riff on West Side Story is torrid and heartfelt if not at all subtle, with a sequel featuring Faith’s best friend still to come.” — Kirkus

The Fourth Wish (The Art of Wishing: Book 2) by Lindsay Ribar (Kathy Dawson Books)

“After taking a fourth wish from her genie-turned-boyfriend Oliver in order to save his life, Margo McKenna has become a genie herself. Picking up right from where The Art of Wishing (Dial, 2013) left off. … Ribar has delivered fans a fun romantic read with some deliciously exciting paranormal elements (shape-shifting anyone?) while casually tackling bisexuality, consent, and the importance of balancing power with humanity. A strong sequel.” — School Library Journal

The Young World by Chris Weitz (Little, Brown)

“Screenwriter/director Weitz (The Golden Compass; About a Boy) kicks off a post-apocalyptic trilogy with a riveting adventure in which teenagers—the only ones immune to a fatal plague known as the Sickness—have inherited the Earth and are fighting over the remnants of New York City. … Weitz offers a satisfying YA interpretation of the Greek classic Anabasis, brimming with grisly encounters and gallows humor. He also finds room to touch upon issues of race, class, commercialism, and sexuality in nuanced moments that are sharply juxtaposed with the near-constant dangers and seeming hopelessness of the larger picture.” — Publishers Weekly

If you told me when I started out on this publishing journey that I’d be on my third literary agent right now, I would have thought you were crazy. I’m not that type of girl. Really. I’m still best friends with the same girls I’ve known since middle school. I keep in touch with people I…
