Cover Reveal: Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock!

Here at YA Highway we are all pumped to post this cover. Kathleen Peacock is my imprint sister (not the Twilight kind of imprint-- both of our books are published by Katherine Tegen Books), a friend, and a generally lovely human being whose book sounds amazing. And now, you can join me in drooling over it.

You can also catch Kathleen's interview with the cover designer here on her blog! Or add the book on Goodreads here.

But without further ado, check out this beauty:


The Jacket Copy:


--

Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love.

HEMLOCK will be out in Summer 2012! Just enough time for me to get to work on some kind of fangirl tee shirt...
