YA Highway: Cover Reveal: REBOOT by Amy Tintera

We're so honored to host the reveal for Amy Tintera's Reboot here on YA Highway today! Here is Amy with her thoughts on her cover:

Hello lovely YA Highway readers! I’m so excited to share the beautiful cover HarperCollins created for Reboot with you. I think they did a wonderful job of capturing the mood of the book, especially since I have no talent for design and gave my editor very little direction. In fact, the conversation went something like this:

Me: I would like an awesome cover. I don’t know what I want. But something awesome.
Harper: DONE.


Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

Reboot releases May 7, 2013 from HarperTeen. Visit my website at amytintera.com, follow me on Twitter: @amytintera, or add Reboot to your Goodreads.

  10. Wow! What a fabulous cover, and what a killer premise for a novel! (I have to admit that I favor covers without pictures of people on them...let's me imagine the characters the way I want.) How have I not heard of Reboot? I can't wait to get my hands on this one.
