I'm absolutely jumping with joy to be able to reveal the cover of More of Me by debut author, Kathryn Evans. Basically the whole of SCBWI_BI know Kathryn and now so should you. She's an amazing author and I'm so excited for her to be publishing her first YA novel.
So without wasting any more time. Here is the cover for More of Me.
Isn't it gorgeous????
The cover was designed by Hannah Cobley at Usborne and the book will be available to buy on the 1st of February 2016!
I was lucky enough to read the book twice and I can tell you now the cover is perfect for the story. Completely spot on! Oh I can't wait for you to read it!!!
Here's Kathryn's reaction to the cover.
"I love the cover, I think Hannah has perfectly captured Teva’s yearning for a normal life combined with her fractured sense of self – it’s just so clever! I knew from my first meeting with Sarah that she, and the Usborne team, completely understood what I was trying to do with More of Me. The cover just confirmed it. They got it. They got me. I couldn’t ask for more."
Kathryn's editor at Usborne, Sarah Stewart also shared her thoughts.
"I am so incredibly excited that we are publishing the extraordinary More of Me by Kathryn Evans. It’s a book that is bizarre, beautiful and it demands to be talked about, so of course we needed a cover that reflects all those things. I personally think this cover does just that. I’m thrilled with it, and I hope everyone else loves it as much as I do!"
So are you eager to know more about the book? Of course you are! Here's the summary to whet your appetite.
The world must not know about our freakery
Teva’s life seems normal: school, friends, boyfriend. But at home she hides an impossible secret.
Eleven other Tevas.
Because once a year, Teva separates into two, leaving a younger version of herself stuck at the same age, in the same house…watching the new Teva live the life that she’d been living. But as her seventeenth birthday rolls around, Teva is determined not to let it happen again. She’s going to fight for her future.
Even if that means fighting herself.
Trust me, you are going to LOVE THIS BOOK! It is like nothing I've ever read!
