Drum Roll Please…ZIP’s Cover Revealed!

7 Mar

I’m am so so so so excited to share the cover of my upcoming Middle Grade novel, ZIP, with all of you lovely readers. When my editors described the art to me, they said it was Pixar meets Tim Burton–which is just exactly what I’d hoped it’d be. I seriously couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

So, without further ado….

See the sunflowers and the hot air balloons? And the art is a little small here but Lyssa’s scooter is painted yellow with little spots of blue showing through which is just exactly how I describe it in the book. Perfection.

For those of you who aren’t sure what the book is about, here’s the description (I pulled it off Amazon, FYI)

A girl discovers adventure at every highway turn in this effervescent debut that’s Savvy meets Little Miss Sunshine

After Lyssa’s mother dies, her kind but clueless new stepfather moves with her to the suburbs of Seattle in the hopes of making a fresh start. But Lyssa feels lost and adrift in the rainy Northwest without her mom. And when she finds out that her old house in Texas is about to be bulldozed, something snaps inside her. Fiercely determined, Lyssa climbs onto her scooter and sets off cross-country to save her home.

Beautifully written and sparkling with magic, Zip is a modern-day successor to Alice in Wonderland. It’s a joyful Odyssey-esque journey that’s perfect for the readers of Savvy.

ZIP comes out in stores September 27th, 2012, but you can pre-order your copy HERE.
