Cover Revealed for IN A PERFECT WORLD

IN A PERFECT WORLDclipI’m thrilled to share the cover for Trish Doller’s next amazing YA novel, IN A PERFECT WORLD, which Simon Pulse will be publishing in May 2017. Reminiscent of Maureen Johnson in 13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES and Stephanie Perkins with ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, Trish takes readers on an exotic journey abroad and in the process, explores the barriers we tear down for the people and places we love most. The Riveted Lit blog had the reveal yesterday, with the following blurb:

Caroline Kelly is excited to be spending her summer vacation working at the local amusement park with her best friend, exploring weird Ohio with her boyfriend, and attending soccer camp with the hope she’ll be her team’s captain in the fall.

But when Caroline’s mother is hired to open an eye clinic in Cairo, Egypt, Caroline’s plans are upended. Caroline is now expected to spend her summer and her senior year in a foreign country, away from her friends, her home, and everything she’s ever known.

With this move, Caroline predicts she’ll spend her time navigating crowded streets, eating unfamiliar food, and having terrible bouts of homesickness. But what she finds instead is a culture that surprises her, a city that astounds her, and a charming, unpredictable boy who challenges everything she thought she knew about life, love, and privilege.

If you haven’t already clicked through to see the gloriousness, behold!
