Cover Reveal: POINTE by Brandy Colbert

Today we are so excited to host the cover reveal for Brandy Colbert's upcoming POINTE. Brandy is a good friend of the Highway. She's a lovely, smart, funny person and a beautiful writer. We cannot wait for POINTE to come out!

Hey everyone! I'm Brandy Colbert, debut author of POINTE, a contemporary realistic novel forthcoming from G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers on April 10, 2014. I'm thrilled to share my cover here on YA Highway, and hope you love it as much as I do. 

Thoughts? I'm obsessed. POINTE's cover was not at all what I expected, but ended up being exactly what I wanted. I think it so beautifully captures the tone and themes of the novel, and I love the pop of color on the title font, along with the spotlight on her silhouette. I'm so thankful to the team at Penguin for creating such an excellent visual representation of my book.

And finally, I can tell you more about the plot! Summary below:

Theo is better now.

She's eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.

Donovan isn't talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn't do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.

Thanks so much for hosting my cover reveal, YA Highway!

POINTE will be published on April 10, 2014. It's currently available for pre-order here, and you can add it here on Goodreads.

You can say hi to Brandy on Twitter, Tumblr, and Goodreads.
