Cover Re-Reveal + Giveaway: THE ART OF NOT BREATHING by Sarah Alexander

Publishing works in mysterious ways, and something that means you get a beautiful cover... and then you get a different beautiful cover. It happened to debut author Sarah Alexander, and we're happy to host her book's second incarnation today.

Check out the original, hosted in July by our friends at YA Interrobang (a site you should be reading), then scroll down for THE ART OF NOT BREATHING's new look, and a giveaway!

About the book:
Since her twin brother, Eddie, drowned five years ago, sixteen-year-old Elsie Main has tried to make sense of what happened – one minute he was there, the next he was gone. Eddie’s body was never found and her parents and older brother refuse to talk about it. Fed up with school and disintegrating family relationships at home, Elsie escapes to her secret hiding place – a disused boathouse – where she can eat as many Mars Bars as she wants and listen to the rain. There she meets seventeen-year-old Tay McKenzie – cool, mysterious and addicted to freediving. When Tay introduces Elsie to the underwater world, she wonders if the answers she seeks are at the bottom of the sea, and she’s determined to discover the truth.

THE ART OF NOT BREATHING depicts a desperate family on the brink and the terrifying secrets that have ripped them apart. Every plot twist is electrifying, every flashback is achingly raw and every bit of buried, angry blame is brought to the surface. But really this is Elsie’s story – a young girl rocked by a family tragedy but still brutally honest and funny on first loves and the struggles of being a teenage outsider.

And now, the cover!
