I am happy to take part in Emily Murdoch's cover reveal for her new novel, If You Find Me!!! The book, formerly titled The Patron Saint of Beans, releases April 2nd, 2013. It is published by St. Martin's Griffin. I had a chance to read it and it was AMAZING!!! It was incredibly intense and impossible to put down!!!
About the book:
A broken-down camper at the Obed Scenic and Wild River National Park - dubbed the Hundred Acre Wood - is the only home fifteen-year-old Carey has ever known.Cover blurb:
Sure, coping with a bipolar mother on meth is no picnic, but beneath the sun-dazzled canopies of Hickory and Walnut, Carey's violin transports her from their bare-bones existence in the same way her little sister, Jenessa, finds comfort in her stash of second-hand Pooh books.
Life is dependable that way, until Mama goes into town for supplies and vanishes off the face of Tennessee, sending social services in her wake with a one-way ticket back to their father - a stranger in an even stranger world.
~*~ A portion of the proceeds will benefit Taylor Hendrix's Christmas Project.
Seventeen-year-old Taylor, battling osteosarcoma, gathers gifts in backpacks to brighten the spirits of cancer teens in hospital during the Christmas holidays.
Who says books (and amazing teens!) can't change the world? ~*~
