Cover Reveal: THE SECRET HISTORY OF US by Jessi Kirby

We're thrilled to reveal the cover of Jessi Kirby's newest YA novel, THE SECRET HISTORY OF US, which will be published by HarperTeen on August 1st, 2017. This one's a stunner. Take a look!

A near drowning . . .
A coma for days . . .
And then . . .

Olivia wakes up to realize she doesn’t remember. Not just the accident—but anything from the last four years. Not high school. Not Matt, the guy who is apparently her boyfriend. Not the reason she and Jules are no longer friends. Nothing.

That’s when it hits her—the accident may not have taken her life, but it took something just as vital: her memory. The harder she tries to remember things, the foggier everything gets, and trying to figure out who she is feels impossible when everyone keeps telling her who she was. But then there’s Walker. The guy who saved her. The one who broke her ribs pumping life back into her lungs. The hardened boy who keeps his distance despite Liv’s attempts to thank him.

With her feelings growing for Walker, tensions rising with Matt, and secrets she can’t help but feel everyone is keeping from her, Olivia must find her place in a life she doesn’t even remember living.

And here's the cover of THE SECRET HISTORY OF US

Jessi's thoughts on the cover:
Water! I was so excited to see that the water element was included in this cover, because I’ve always been fascinated with writing about it—literally, and symbolically.  As far as this book goes, Liv’s near-death experience is really the beginning of a new life for her, and I think this image captures that perfectly!
