New Liar Cover

Thank you Megan for commenting on the cover!

The new image is fabulous and, to the author's delight, representative of the book. If anyone wants to hear about the issues regarding the initial cover and the lack of black faces on Y/A covers, Justine has lots to say, and all of it too true! http://justinelarbalestier.com/blog/2009/08/06/the-new-cover/

I want to say BRAVO to Bloomsbury from the floor sellers at Kepler's. We are eager to sell this excellent book, especially with its new cover that just calls to readers from the shelf.

There has been so much controversy over this. I wonder if all the publicity will help promote the book? I can't wait to read the book.

I certainly hope IT DOES.

It reads like a psychological thriller with an unreliable narrator and even at the end it's hard to know what or whom to believe. Since self-invention is part of teen life, even as the book wondered into fantasy it felt very real from Micah's point of view. I am thinking it will land at Kepler's last week in September, but just wrote for an update. I hope it's sooner!
