Cover Reveal: Entangled by Amy Rose Capetta

I am very, very excited about Entangled by Amy Rose Capetta...I included it in my list of 2013 books that I'm excited for, and I've had many fun conversations with Amy Rose about writing and YA books. (She also graduated from VCFA! I haven't even started there yet and I am loving everything about that place!) I am so happy to reveal the cover of her book today!

I love this cover. I like how it looks a bit edgy and dangerous, and the green eye is so striking. While I'm not normally a fan of people on covers, this image is beautiful, and I love, love the stars in the corner. All of the little details are subtle and so pretty, and I am now even more excited about this release, if that is possible!

Amy Rose has this to say about the cover: 
"I think my favorite part is that I can see my sixteen-year-old self being completely drawn in by this cover. The hints of sci-fi peeking out behind the mysterious, bad-ass girl? Yes! Thank you.

This cover was actually part of a mock-up that my editor Kate made to show me how excited she and HMH were about the book. I fell in love with their excitement, and how well Kate understood the book. It’s basically the same cover she sent me on offer day!" 
About the book:
"Alone was the note Cade knew best. It was the root of all her chords. 
Seventeen-year-old Cade is a fierce survivor, solo in the universe with her cherry-red guitar. Or so she thought. Her world shakes apart when a hologram named Mr. Niven tells her she was created in a lab in the year 3112, then entangled at a subatomic level with a boy named Xan.
Cade’s quest to locate Xan joins her with an array of outlaws—her first friends—on a galaxy-spanning adventure. And once Cade discovers the wild joy of real connection, there’s no turning back."
What do you think about the cover?  Entangled comes out on October 1st, 2013!

It's interesting how that eye is centered at the top. Mesmerizing. I love it!
