Michelle and Mindi

Michelle Andreani and Mindi Scott: Authors of THE WAY BACK TO YOU

Our very lovely Michelle Andreani revealed her cover for THE WAY BACK TO YOU today over at Vilma’s Book Blog.

Michelle and her co-author, Mindi Scott, can’t wait for you to settle in with this story about a poignant and powerful road trip! You can also enter to win a $5 Amazon gift card and an ARC. There’s also an exclusive interview with Michelle and Mindi that you don’t want to miss!

Six months ago, Ashlyn Montiel died in a bike accident.

Her best friend CLOUDY is keeping it together, at least on the outside. Cloudy’s insides are a different story: tangled, confused, heartbroken.

KYLE is falling apart, and everyone can tell. Ashlyn was his girlfriend, and when she died, a part of him went with her. Maybe the only part he cared about.

As the two people who loved Ashlyn best, Cloudy and Kyle should be able to lean on each other. But after a terrible mistake last year, they’re barely speaking. So when Cloudy discovers that Ashlyn’s organs were donated after her death and the Montiel family has been in touch with three of the recipients, she does something a little bit crazy and a lot of out character: she steals the letters and convinces Kyle to go on a road trip with her, from Oregon to California to Arizona to Nevada. Maybe if they meet the recipients—the people whose lives were saved by Ashlyn’s death—the world will open up again. Or maybe it will be a huge mistake.

With hundreds of miles in front of them, a stowaway kitten, and a list of people who are alive because of Ashlyn, Cloudy and Kyle just may find their way back to her . . . and to each other.

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Marisa Reichardt’s cover for her YA contemporary debut UNDERWATER any more than we already do, along comes the UK version. And we are swooning all over again.

As Marisa says, “For the UK cover, it’s the sparkles. The green. The blue. The hair being so perfectly Morgan Grant. The concept of the girl treading water, trying to keep her head above the surface, that is so completely perfect.”

About the Book (UK jacket copy):

1. Breathe
2. You are OK
3. You are not dying
What happened that day can’t be changed; can’t be unseen. But Morgan survived, and now she needs to find a way to move on – and forgive the unforgivable.

But Morgan can’t forgive, and she can’t move on. She can’t even move beyond the front door of the apartment she shares with her mother and her little brother. She feels like she’s underwater, unable to surface.

Just when it seems Morgan can’t hold her breath any longer, a new boy moves in next door. Evan reminds her of the salty ocean air, and what it feels like to be alive. But can he help her find the strength to face the future?
