Check out the cover for FIRE & FLOOD by Victoria Scott!Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Victoria Scott. If you've been lurking around book blogs and goodreads, i'm sure you've heard of this name before. Victoria is the author of the highly rated YA paranormal read The Collector. If you've read it and loved it, high five! If you haven't, what are you waiting for?! The Collector made me a fan of Victoria Scott, and as a member of the V MAFIA, I was one of the first people to see the gorgeous cover for her latest book, Fire & Flood- and today i'm going to share it with all of you!
Have you heard of it before? Yes? No? Either way, here's the awesome summary of the book:
In a perilous race across the world, having the best Pandora can be the difference between life and death.
Sixteen-year-old Tella Holloway isn’t happy. Her mother rushed them out of Boston and into a craptastic house nestled in Middle of Nowhere, Montana. To make matters worse, Tella’s brother is sick, and though a dozen doctors can’t determine the cause, her mother is sure Montana’s “fresh air” will help. Now Tella spends her days being homeschooled, and uses her imagination as entertainment.
But when a small blue box appears on her bed, Tella’s world is rocked. Inside the strange package she finds a white ear bud—and after she fits it into place and touches its blinking button—an unknown voice fills her head. Tella is invited to join the Brimstone Bleed, a race across four ecosystems: desert, sea, mountains, jungle. The voice in Tella’s ear explains she has 48 hours to retrieve her Pandora, an animal genetically designed to help her win.
Tella has never been the sporty type; she’s more a cheerleader than an athlete. But despite her mother’s warnings, she’s determined to compete in the race. And she’ll do anything to win, because if Tella is the Brimstone Bleed victor, she'll be granted a specific gift—the cure to save her brother’s life.
FIRE & FLOOD is a teen thriller set in modern day.
Soooo, are you excited to see the cover? :D
Well, here we go~
In a nutshell, they wanted three things: simplicity, masculinity, and for the cover to attract readers of all ages and genders. Well, Victoria and I believe that they succeeded. Excuse me while I wait for 2014...
FIRE & FLOOD's expected to be published on March 2014 by Scholastic- remember to add it to your goodreads shelf!
