Elle Strauss, a fellow YaLitChat.org member, has recently had a change in her book cover she was dying to show off. So I happily obliged. The book has been released in print as well as ebook format. You can find it here. The old cover is below, while the new one is below that one. The first has a whimsical feel, but the new one gives off the perfect cute and fun vibe, which mirrors the actual story. Not to mention it follows the YA trend of teens on the cover (or more accurately the upper body of a teen or a close-up shot of a face), which helps when determining a book's genre. It's the same logic when it comes to spotting an erotica novel. You know that similar half-naked theme they all follow. I've only just heard of this novel, a recent release, but based on what's been said and the plot I do believe I'll add it to my to-be-read list. :)
Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?
When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.
Which of course, she does.
What's Been Said:
"Readers who 'trip' back in time with Casey will wish they could stay longer in her strangely relatable place." - Kirkus Review
"I loved Clockwise! A great read, and I love your Casey/Cassandra. Congratulations."
- Wendy Orr, author of Nim's Island
Happy Reading Lovelies!
