It's been on my home page for a while, but FINALLY, I'm putting it on this Book News page! (Hey! I've been busy writing! I can't do everything!)
ANYWAY - I'm very excited about the cover, which I think is quite beautiful. Different than the cover for Don't Expect Magic, but taking it to the next level, showing a slightly more mature Delaney (and more challenged, as you'll see if you read the book). The image on the cover is referred to very briefly and subtly in the novel. See if you can catch it...
Of course, you'll have to wait a few months, since the book won't be published until next year: July 8, 2013 to be exact.
