Cover Talk: Reunited

A few weeks ago, I interviewed Hillary Weisman Graham, author of Reunited, a YA novel that comes out in June. You can read the interview here. The basic premise of the novel can be explained pretty succinctly: "1 concert, 2,000 miles, 3 ex-best friends" And, I think the cover got that!

First off, I love the bright yellow! It's so eye-catching and happy! Second, the big map the girls are hiding behind? Genius! It's so cool and says a lot about the book. This is just such a fun and eye-catching cover!

Here's the official summary:
"Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends. 
Back in middle school, the three girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3. 
But when the band broke up, so did their friendship. Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books. 
Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show.
Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse. And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. Good thing Alice’s graduation gift (a pea-green 1976 VW camper van know as the Pea Pod) is just the vehicle to get them there. 
But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?"
What do you think of the cover, and the book? It's going to be hard waiting for this one...it doesn't come out until June 2012!

it sounds fine, a little "fluffy" for my taste though.

Sounds amazing! I'm a sucker for road-trip books, and this one sounds like it's right up there at the top.
