Cover Reveal: FLIGHT RISK by Jennifer Fenn

Today we're happy to reveal the cover of FLIGHT RISK by Jennifer Fenn, coming July 2017 from Roaring Brook Press!

Here's a little about the book:

Teenage trailer trash. Airplane thief. Outlaw. Folk-hero. 18-year-old Robert Jackson Kelley is on the run after fleeing a juvenile home and stealing not one, but three airplanes. Inspired by a true story, FLIGHT RISK is a briskly paced, sophisticated YA novel reminiscent of the film "Catch Me If You Can."

Robert’s exploits make him both a fugitive and a national celebrity. Son of a single mother and jailed father, Robert struggles with severe ADHD, but discovers he can focus in one place: the pilot’s seat. Soon simulated flights don’t offer enough of an escape from his small island community, and Robert finds himself piloting his first stolen aircraft. Told in a collage style using multiple points of view, the myth and the reality of Robert’s flight from the law unfold simultaneously.

And here are Jennifer's thoughts on the cover:
I wasn’t blessed with artistic talent.  I consider an art project a success if nothing is broken and no one got hurt.  I couldn’t have dreamed up a better cover for Flight Risk than Andrew Arnold at Roaring Brook Press delivered!  I was shown an early version and I loved it so much.  The color scheme, the silhouetted tree line, the stark moon and the touch of red on the plane all come together to create a dramatic, iconic image.  There’s a cinematic quality to the cover that matches the book’s tone; to me, the image looks like it could be on a movie poster.  I’m couldn’t be happier with what Andrew created, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it.

Now for the big reveal...
